A pair of monomers capable of undergoing reversible polymerization - based on reversible Diels-Alder (DA) chemistry - as a function of the applied reaction temperature is presented. Specifically, the reaction of isophorone bis(sorbic carbamate), a difunctional diene, with 1,4-phenylenebis(methylene) bis((diethoxyphosphoryl)methanedithioformate), a difunctional dithioester, was studied in detail. Various factors, including the monomer concentration, the type of solvent, and the presence of a...[Show more]
