- ... A method to covalently attach combinations of six different B vitamins provided an avenue to new functional thermosets without multi‐step coupling reactions. The melt polymerization strategy required no organic solvent and facilitated covalent attachment of OH (B₁, B₂, B₅, B₆) or COOH (B₇, B₉) groups on B vitamins via Fischer esterification. Characterization of model reactions with LC/MS, FTIR, an ...
