It was also found that an average molecular weight and level of epoxide groups in the ENR molecules might be controlled by incorporating a suitable concentration of sodium nitrite solution and a given reaction time.
This procedure involved forming the epoxides from linoleic acid and then opening the epoxide ring to generate the vicinal diols.

Their result details how a soil bacterium, Streptomyces lasaliensis, is able to convert an epoxide into a six-membered cyclic ether during synthesis of lasalocid, a natural polyether antibiotic.
The silver-filled epoxide is also useful where hot solder does not bond to the types of metals or wires to be joined, and for microwave shielding.
We investigated whether infants' length of gestation, birth weight, and crown-heel length were associated with maternal serum levels of 11 different organochlorine pesticides: p,p'-dichlorodiphenyhrichloroethane (p,p'-DDT), p,p'-dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (p,p'-DDE), o,p'-dichlorodiphenyhrichloroethane (o,p'-DDT), hexachlorobenzene (HCB), [beta]-hexachlorocyclohexane ([beta]-HCCH), [gamma]-hexachlorocyclohexane ([gamma]-HCCH), dieldrin, heptachlor epoxide, oxychlordane, trans-nonachlor, and mirex.
Furthermore, postcuring of the resins could not be detected, suggesting that no residual -NH groups reacted with residual epoxide rings, which could possibly be present.
