Abstract


Polymerization reactions are based on complex processes that are somewhat difficult to predict via mathematical models, especially without experimental data. The goal of this paper is to present a comparison between DSC and infrared spectroscopy. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is the industry-standard method for determine the cure of a polymer, but it is a labor-intensive method that is also fairly slow. Infrared spectroscopy is used to monitor the cure chemistry of DGEBA (Diglycidyl Ether of Bisphenol A) and to observe in-situ the evolution of the reticulation.
