The cure monitoring of cyanoacrylate resin using a dielectric technique shows that in addition to the usual fast anionic polymerization step, there may be a secondary process involved over longer time scales. Two peaks are distinctly observed in the isothermal curing curves, and from the position of these at various temperatures, the activation energies of 0.4 eV and 0.17 eV could be derived. In cured cyanoacrylate resin, three relaxations were observed, viz., α, β, and γ, occurring at 152°c, 87°c, and 47°c, respectively (for 1 KHz measuring frequency), with activation energies of 1.3 eV, 0.56 eV, and 0.4 eV, respectively. The various results have been explained on the basis of secondary bond formation through the nitrile group, for which some evidence could be obtained from the infrared absorption spectra.
