TALENT: Renewable Polyols for Polyurethane Synthesis via Thiol-ene/yne Couplings of Plant Oils

Gerard Lligadas

Nowadays, the utilization of chemicals derived from renewable feedstock is in the spotlight of the polymeric industry. Plant oils and derivatives are important platform chemicals due to their amazing chemical versatility. Herein, these materials together with thiol-ene/yne couplings are presented as a perfect ecofriendly combination to prepare hydroxyl building blocks for polyurethane technology.
