The present work is attempting to synthesize and characterizations of a novel carbazole core containing cardanol based benzoxazine monomer from carbazole core containing aromatic diamine, cardanol and paraformaldehyde. In addition, carbazole core containing cardanol based benzoxazine polymer and various weight percentages of amine functionalized rice husk ash incorporated carbazole core containing cardanol based polybenzoxazine composites were prepared. The prepared polymer and its composites were characterized by FTIR, XRD, DSC, TGA and dielectric studies. The various studies confirm that the composites show increased Tg, higher char yield and better thermal stability compared to carbazole core containing cardanol based benzoxazine polymer. In addition to that the composites show significant decrease in the dielectric constant values than the neat cardanol based polybenzoxazine. The surface morphology and the distribution of rice husk ash in carbazole core containing cardanol based polybenzoxazine composites are confirmed by SEM and TEM analysis. Hence, the present study has attempted to prepared eco-friendly value added carbazole core containing cardanol based polybenzoxazine products for low dielectric constant applications by making use of biowaste for both matrix and reinforcement preparation to form biowaste based composites.
