Thermally curable naphthoxazine-functionalized polymers were synthesized by the reaction of linear (diamines) and branched (triamines) poly(propyleneoxide)s (Jeffamine series) having various molecular weights, with p-formaldehyde, and 2-naphthol. The structures of the resulting polymers were characterized by using FT-IR and H-1-NMR. In addition, curing behavior of these polymers was studied using differential scanning calorimeter (DSC). Hydrophilicity of these polymers, both in cured and non-cured states, was investigated by water contact angle measurements. The surface topographies of the polymers were also examined by atomic force microscope (AFM). (c) 2006 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
