21) These are silicone copolymers, with polyether substituted structural units and epoxy or oxirane structural units that are reacted with acrylates produce cross-linked silicones with acrylate cross links.
A solventless, room-temperature curing agent consists of a mixture of blocked polyisocyanates, primary amines, oxirane compounds, and 2,3-dimethyl-3,4,5,6-tetrahydropyrimidine.
For the silanization of siliceous fillers for use with the new epoxy dental resins, organosilanes having the epoxy or oxirane functionality rather than vinyl groups are employed (Fig.
Horgan worked at DuPont and Oxirane Corporation, later purchased by ARCO Chemical.
to which affinity-purified anti-zeatin antibody was conjugated by the oxirane reaction.
After the generation of epoxides the oxirane rings open and the allylic alcohols 4a and 4b (in the case of the [gamma]-attack) are formed.
Epoxy resins, characterized by presence of one or more oxirane rings in the structure, are one of the versatile thermosetting polymers which has a wide range of applications such as coatings, adhesives, and composites [1].
2] and the reaction continued until the oxirane oxygen content reached a maximum (5 h).
A resin system was recently developed that is based on the ring-opening polymerization of silorane molecules containing both siloxane and oxirane, rather than the free radical polymerization of dimethacrylate (DMA) monomers.
Siloxanes are known for their hydrophobicity while the oxirane polymers are known for their low shrinkage and superior stability toward many physical/ chemo-physical forces and influences.
