Bisphthalamic acids were prepared by reaction of phthalic anhydride and aliphatic diamines. Novel poly(ester-amide)s (PEAs) was prepared by reaction of epoxy resin (DGEBF) with bisphthalamic acids. Acrylation of PEAs was carried out using acryloyl chloride and products are designated as acrylated poly(ester-amide)s (APEAs). PEAs and APEAs were characterized by elemental analysis and number average molecular weight. IR spectra recorded for PEAs. Blending of APEAs was carried out with methyl methacrylate monomer. Curing of APEAs-MMA blends was monitored on differential scanning calorimeter. Composites of APEAs-MMA blends have been laminated and characterized. Unreinforced cured samples of these APEAs-MMA blends were analyzed thermogravimetrically.
