Novel amphiphatic piperazine, pyrazine, and pyridine compounds were evaluated as thermal latent catalysts for the polymerization of diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA). Results including the viscosity-storage time, cure activation energy, exothermic heats and viscosity-storage time obtained indicated that the amphiphatic piperazine, pyrazine, and pyridine compounds exhibited good to excellent latency properties at room temperature.
