, latexes crosslinked with cycloaliphatic epoxides
, protective space coatings, high solids and water-reducible alkyds, UV-curable coatings, inorganic/organic hybrid coatings, coatings from renewable resources, auto-oxidative curing mechanism of drying oils, plasma deposition of high performance coatings, corrosion resistant polyurethane coatings, and homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis.
Summary: Direct transformation of different kinds of epoxides
to 1,2-diacetates was carried out easily and efficiently with Ac2O/B(OH)3 system.

over reusable solid catalysts; catalytic metal-/bio-composites for fine chemicals derived from biomass production; homoleptic metal carbonyls in organic transformation; zeolites; optimizing zeolitic catalysis for environmental remediation.
Mammalian sEH converts epoxides
or three membered cyclic ethers to their corresponding diols through the addition of a water molecule (Morisseau and Hammock 2013).
Significant efforts have been directed towards the catalytic alternating copolymerization of aliphatic epoxides
with carbon dioxide that generates aliphatic polycarbonates with a wide array of applications.
Figure-2 showed the comparison of degradation of PAH diol epoxides
in extracellular medium of both models.
In this paper, the fluorinated acrylics and TEOS modified epoxides
have been selected to mix into one single coating system.
For example, terpolymers derived from two different epoxides
Results of the research showed that manganese nano-oxides produced in the presence of various oxidants was able to oxidize water to oxygen, and alkenes to epoxides
Among the topics are the catalytic activation of carbon dioxide and its conversion into fuels or value-added chemicals by forming carbon-carbon bonds, new catalysts for activating carbon dioxide in several typical processes, the electro-catalytic reduction of carbon dioxide, synthesizing cyclic carbonates from carbon dioxide and epoxides
, and the photocatalytic conversion of carbon dioxide into fuels using layered double hydroxides coupled with hydrogen or water.
It has been suggested that the accumulated epoxides
may act as teratogen.
