In this paper, a possible formulation of thermo-reversible epoxy system (2Ph2Epo65) based on Diels Alder adducts has been discussed and experimentally investigated.
The key transformation of our synthetic approach involves a Transannular Diels Alder (TADA) reaction to establish the ABC ring system of the molecule in a single step.
Alternatively, these conjugated diene units can be used for functionalization of the polymer with silica interactive/reactive groups using Diels Alder reactions.
Further, they can be dehydrated to a family of furanics, as shown in Figure 4, which include furfural, hydroxymethylfurfural, furandicarboxylic acid, and, through Diels Alder chemistry with ethylene, aromatics such as p-xylene and terephthalic acid.
