Cationic photopolymerization of bio-renewable monomers
Recent years have witnessed an increasing demand for the replacement of petroleum-derivate polymeric materials with bio-renewable polymers. This work presents an enhanced sustainable approach to the synthesis of epoxy functionalized bio-renewable monomers that can be applied in cationic photopolymerization. The cationic UV-curing process was efficient in obtaining crosslinked coatings with a wide range of thermo-mechanical properties.
