Synthesis of Covalent Adaptable Networks from food waste

Line of research
The Covalent Adaptable Networks (CANs) are polymers in which the crosslinks are formed by reversible covalent bonds.This line of research is focused on the synthesis of new CANs, using, as starting monomers, substances obtained from food-grade waste. In particular, oleic acid or its methyl ester is used as the starting material, both of which can be obtained from used frying oils.
