13C-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy was employed to study the linkages in three commercial fully methylocated melamine-formaldehyde (HMMM) resins and their partially self-condensed resins by acid catalysis, in order to probe the structures linking melamine units. Distortionless enhancement by polarization transfer (DEPT) experiments show that the partially self-condensed resins contain both methylene ether and methylene linkages between melamine units. The extent of these linkages were estimated by quantitative 13C-NMR spectroscopy using inverse gated decoupling techniques. The results show that the ratios of methylene ether and methylene linkages to the triazine moiety vary from resin to resin. © 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
