This study deals with the thermoreversible non-linear Diels-Alder polycondensation of monomers based on plant oil and furan derivatives. The monomers were synthesized using both conventional mechanisms and the thiol-ene click reaction. Those bearing both furan and maleimide moieties were protected to avoid premature polymerization. All the ensuing polymers, whether highly branched, or crosslinked, displayed a clear-cut thermal reversibility to the starting monomers thanks to the retro-Diels-Alder reaction, applied at 110 °C.
