Abstract

An α,ω-diene containing hydroxyl groups was prepared from plant oil-derived platform chemicals. The acyclic diene metathesis copolymerization (ADMET) of this monomer with a phosphorus-containing α,ω-diene (DOPO II), also plant oil derived, afforded a series of phosphorus containing linear polyesters, which have been fully characterized. The backbone hydroxyls of these polyesters have been acrylated and radically polymerized to produce crosslinked polymers. The thermomechanical and mechanical properties, the thermal stability, and the flame retardancy of these phosphorus-based thermosets have been studied. Moreover, methyl 10-undecenoate has been used as chain stopper in selected ADMET polymerizations to study the effect of the prepolymers' molecular weights on the different properties of the final materials. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
