A polymer is a giant molecule, made of many repeated subunits. Titled material Epoxy resin is a polymer. Films of epoxy resin with curing agents are prepared by wt/wt ratio. The concentrations of both the polymer and curing agents are varied. Organic solvents - Triethylenetetramine and Diethylenetriamine are curing agents used in this study. Films are casted by solvent evaporation technique. Films of epoxy resin with different curing agents are subjected to spectroscopic, mechanical and dielectric studies. From the studies better curing agent is traced out. Copyright © VBRI Press.
