Polybenzoxazine is a thermoset material. It shows very good properties including zero shrinkage upon polymerization, good thermal stability, low surface energy, good mechanical properties. However, the starting material for the benzoxazine synthesis is not environmentally- friendly, for example, aniline, phenol. This project is intended to use bio-based material to make benzoxazine and the polybenzoxazine shows high performance.
Abstract: The front cover artwork for Issue 08/2016 is provided by Prof. Dr. Zhenhua Li, Prof. Dr. Xinbin Ma, and co‐workers from Tianjin University (P.R. China). The image shows that an iron catalyst supported on alkali‐modified carbon nanotubes (CNTs) exhibits extraordinary Fischer–Tropsch catalytic performance and efficient application to diesel production.
