Synthesis of a Novel Low Dielectric Constant Fluorine Containing Epoxy
A novel fluorine containing epoxy 4-fluoro-4′,4″-diepoxypropoxy triphenyl methane (FDE) was designed and synthesized. The synthesized epoxy was cured by methyl nadic anhydride (MNA) and diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA) was chosen for comparison. Both glass transfer temperature (Tg) and 5% weight loss degradation temperature (Td5%) of cured FDE are over 60°C higher than that of DGEBA. Dielectric constants of the cured FDE at 106 Hz and 107 Hz are 3.09 and 2.91, comparing to 3.50 and 3.24 of the cured DGEBA, respectively. Furthermore, water absorption of the cured FDE is lower than that of DGBEA.
