Egyptian cotton straw powder was acid hydrolized in presence of coal tar phenols fraction (b.r. 170–185°C) to give the phenols‐furfural resin. Homopolyepoxy resin was prepared via condensation of epichlorohydrin with phenols‐furfural resin. Similarly copolyepoxy resin was also prepared from epichlorohyhdrin, phenols‐furfural resin and prepared bisphenol A based on coal tar phenols fraction. A study of curing these epoxy resins at 170–185°C with phthalic or maleic anhydride also curing at room temperature with amine was carried out. Also the effect of the addition of kaolin as a filler was investigated to find the optimum condition which allow the cured resin to act as wood adhesive. The obtained results were comparable with those of some commercial adhesives.
