Activation Energies of Liquid Crystalline Thermoset Containing Rigid-Rod Epoxy
4,4’-Diglycidyloxy-α-methylstilbene (DOMS) was synthesized and characterized with cross-polarized optical microscopy (POM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Activation energies for decomposition (Ed) by TGA were determined as a function of conversion by weight loss process.
