Abstract: The transamidation reaction converts the carbonate and amine into N-aliphatic aromatic carbamate and urea, causing the equivalent of oxirane and amine nonstoichiometric in the primary cure stage. After postcure, the substitution reaction takes place and results in a more tightly crosslinked structure. Such a higher crosslinking density is responsible for higher T-g, tensile strength, and tensile modulus in the postcure stage than that in the primary and secondary cure stages. This trend is more pronounced in those PC-epoxy blends containing higher molecular weight aliphatic amine or a higher content of PC. This phenomenon is due to the difference in the fraction of amino group of aliphatic amine consumed in the transamidation. PC-epoxy/aliphatic amine blends show minor improvement in the high strain rate Izod impact tests, while toughness improvement for some blends is substantial at low strain rate tensile tests.
