The Si-O-Si bonds would not react with AO and the dissociation energy was higher than that of other organic bonds in pristine epoxy resin.
The reaction mainly attributes to the low dissociation energy of the bond in the epoxy resin structure.
Lubo Jurasek of McGill University considered the reactivity of lignin models with oxygen-centred radicals, computing the proton and electron affinity and O-H bond dissociation energy.
