The poly(3-hydroxyoctanoate-co-3-hydroxy-10,11-epoxyundecanoate)s, PHOEs, with epoxide pendant units of 10, 22 and 34 mole% were prepared. The PHOEs were crosslinked with a stoichiometric hexamethylene diamine (HMDA) at 90°C for 0.5–24 h. The crosslinking reaction of PHOE–HMDA system was verified from the glass transition temperature (Tg) increment and the relative storage modulus increment. Higher increment in Tg and relative modulus with increasing the amount of epoxide group in the initial PHOE was observed. Activation energies of the crosslinking reaction were determined by use of the Kissinger and the Ozawa methods. The activation energies for the crosslinking reactions have similar values for each sample, regardless of epoxide content in the PHOEs. The values obtained from the Ozawa method were slightly higher than those from the Kissinger method.
