Project description

An efficient, newly developed chemical reaction based on triazolinediones will be studied in detail for the production and/or functionalization of renewable polymers from plant oils, terpenes en terpenoids via chemical pathways that are robust, non-toxic, atom-efficient and orthogonal.
