Abstract : The effects of Co(acac)x complexes on MY-720 epoxy properties have been investigated. It appears that Co(2+) ions form antibonding or nonbonding orbitals which increase the free volume and also reduce the cohesiveness of the host epoxy. The effects of Co(3+) ions, on the other hand, seem to result in increased cohesiveness of the epoxy. jg p.3
