AbstractFluorinated epoxy resins were synthesised and evaluated as sorbent coating materials for the detection of organophosphorus compounds using quartz piezoelectric crystal detector. These resins were prepared by reacting excess of epichlorohydrin with each of or in combination of fluorinated diols, ie, a, a, a', a' tetrakis (trifluoromethyl) 1,3 benzene dimethanol (TTFMBD), 4,4'bis-2-hydroxy hexafluoro isopropyl) biphenyl (BHHFIBP), 4,4'dihydroxyocta fluorodiphenyl (DHOFDP) and 2,2,3,3,4,4 hexafluoro 1,5 pentanediol (HFPD) in the presence of sodium hydroxide at reflux temperature. These polymers were extracted in organic solvents and dried. Each of these fluoroepoxy resins were coated over quartz piezoelectric crystal by solution-casting method and tested using dimethylmethyl phosphonate (DMMP) as model compound. Change in the frequency (AF) of quartz piezoelectric crystal oscillator was recorded. Sensitive and potential fluorinated epoxy resins, ie, diglycidylethers (DGE) of HFPD-TTFMBD (in the molar ratio 6:4) and DGE (HFPD-BHHFIBP in the molar ratio 4:6) were characterised by viscosity, number average molecular weight (Mn), epoxy equivalent, infrared spectroscopy, and thermal stability.
