It has been observed that various batches of the commercial Bisphenol A low-molecular-weight epoxide resins differ in the rate of their reaction under identical conditions with Bisphenol A. Technological contaminants, namely glycerin and sodium chloride, have been detected in the resin. It has been found that changes in their content in the resin are the reason of the differences in their reactivity. Studies carried out with model systems have revealed a synergetic effect in the system of glycerin and sodium chloride. Sodium chloride has solely catalytic effect , whereas glycerin takes part in the reaction with epoxide resin.
