Handbook of Benzoxazine Resins

Edited by

  • Hatsuo Ishida, Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio, USA
  • Tarek Agag, Elastomer Adhesives & Coatings Technologies (EACT), LORD Corporation, Erie, PA, USA

This handbook provides a wide overview of the field, fundamental understanding of the synthetic methods and structure/property correlation, as well as studies related to applications in a wide range of subjects. The handbook also provides 1H and 13C NMR spectra, FTIR spectra, DSC and TGA thermograms to aid in research activities. Additional tables on key NMR and FTIR frequencies unique to benzoxazine, heat of polymerization, Tg, and char yield will greatly aid in the choice of proper benzoxazine for a specific application.
