Synthesis and Characterization of a New Thermosetting Boric Acid Ester
A new thermosetting boric acid ester modifier containing unsaturated bonds (abbreviated TBCE) was prepared. Structure, hydrolytic stability, curing properties and and thermal properties of the boric acid ester were studied by FT-IR, DSC and TGA. The result indicated that the obtained boric acid ester was soluble in most common solvents and was easily processed. The thermogravimetric analysis of silicon-containing arylacetylene resin modified by TBSE (abbreviated MSAR) showed that char yield at 800°C was 87% under nitrogen and 49% under air, and Td5 (temperature of 5% weight loss) were 570°C and 580°C respectively.
