Model Studies Towards Alternative Cross-Linking of Unsaturated Polyesters

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Research units


Fumaric and maleic acid esters are functionalised with propargylamine. A subsequent Pd/Cu-catalysed oxidative homo-coupling of two alkyne moieties yields the corresponding dimers. Hence, a model of an unsaturated polyester chain is cross-linked in a welldefined, metal-mediated reaction in a very high yield.
