Project description

In this project, internal catalysis and neighbouring group participation will be investigated for its use in polymer materials. Therefore, 1,4-dicarboxylic acid derivatives and related building blocks will be used for the production of covalent adaptive networks and vitrimer materials with broad application scopes.
