  • Student Poster.
    The development of polymeric materials that incorporate naturally occurring monomers from renewable resources are of great interest. We investigated the carbocationic copolymerization of isobutylene (IB) with alloocimene (Allo). Alloocimene is produced by thermal isomerization of a-pinene, which can be found in the oils of several tree species. This is the first report of a polymer containing diblock structure exhibiting TPE properties.
