Synthesis of polyoxazolidines and their application in moisture-curable polyurethane

A series of polyoxazolidines based on monofunctional oxazolidine were designed and successfully synthesized by transesterification reaction. Their structures were characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, FI-IR, ESI-MS, and elemental analysis. FI-IR spectroscopy was used to study the kinetics of oxazolidines hydrolysis reactions. Furthermore, the...

Investigation of the synthesis of poly-D,L-lactide-co-poly(ethylene glycol) flexible thermoplastic

A series of biodegradable poly(D,L-lactide)-poly(ethylene glycol) multiblock poly(ether-ester-urethane)s with various lactide-to-poly(ethylene glycol) (LA/PEG) mole ratios has been successfully synthesized by ring-opening polymerization (ROP) followed by chain extension reaction through formation of urethane linkage. Resulting FT-IR spectra...

Scaffolded Thermally Remendable Hybrid Polymer Networks

Step-growth Diels–Alder (DA) networks using furan and maleimide groups are particularly useful in forming thermally remendable crosslinked polymers, due to the dramatic shift in equilibrium over a relatively low temperature range as compared with other diene-dienophile pairs. However, the efficient healing observed in these materials at high...
