The fracture toughness of the semi-IPN's of crosslinked epoxy and linear polysulfone(PSf) having morphology spectrum was investigated. The epoxy resin was based on diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A(DGEBA) and diaminodiphenylsulfone(DDS). The morphology spectrum, which has the gradual change of the morphological feature resulting from the concentration gradient of Sf in the epoxy resin can be obtained by inserting a PSP film in DGEBA/DDS mixture before cure. The relative rate of the dissolution of the PSf in the epoxy oligomer and the rate of curing reaction determine the concentration gradient of the PSf. In the region where the PSf concentration is less then 5%, sea(epoxy)-island(PSf) morphology is observed. As the concentration of PSf increases, the morphology changes to nodular structure, inverted sea-island, and PSE/epoxy homogeneous phase. Up to overall 10wt% of PSZ the fracture toughness of the PSf modified epoxy with morphology spectrum was higher than that of the counterpart with uniform concentration of PSf. These results were ascribed to the plastic deformation of the continuous PSf rich phase which was present in the morphology spectrum.
