Primary Amine-Functional Benzoxazine Monomers and Their Use for Amide-Containing Monomeric Benzoxazines

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Amino-functional benzoxazine monomers have been successfully prepared. Several routes have been applied to incorporate amino group into benzoxazine structure. These approaches include reduction of the corresponding nitro-functional benzoxazines and deprotection of protected amino-functional benzoxazine monomers. Various approaches that allow primary amine groups to be prepared without damaging the existing benzoxazine groups have been evaluated. Tetrachlorophthalimide and trifluoroacetyl are found to be suitable protecting groups. In addition, a model compound of amide-functional benzoxazines is prepared from primary amine-functional benzoxazine. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and H-1 and C-13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) are used to characterize the structure of the monomers. The polymerization behavior of amino-functional monomers and model compound are studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).
