1,2-Limonene oxide and α-pinene oxide are two high reactivity biorenewable monomers that undergo facile highly exothermic photoinitiated cationic ring-opening polymerizations using both diaryliodonium salt and triarylsufonium salt photoinitiators. The photocopolymerizations of these two biorenewable monomers with several multifunctional epoxides were carried out and it was observed that these monomers were effective in increasing the reaction rates and shortening the induction periods.
