Preparation and characterization of silver sulfathiazole-epoxy resin networks (in English)

Polimery 2008, No 9, 644


Summary

A new synthetic material was prepared starting from silver sulfathiazole compound and Ropoxid 501 epoxy resin based on bisphenol A. The synthesized product was crosslinked with ethylenediamine, in the presence of poly(diethylene adipate lactate)diol (PDEAL), as a biodegradable external plasticizer. The composite materials (networks) were analyzed by infrared spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetry. The values of density, volume shrinkage, water absorption and fungicidal action of the synthesized networks were also evaluated. The presence of the silver in the epoxy networks led to important modifications of the resin properties towards the fungicidal action.


Key words: epoxy resin, silver sulfathiazole, crosslinking, plasticization, thermal stability, fungicidal action
