Abstract

It is the purpose of this thesis to study the possible mechanisms by which styrene may react with tung oil. To this end, styrene is reacted with tung oil, using a peroxide catalyst, the reaction product is separated into its components, and a preliminary analysis of these components is made, in an attempt to determine whether the reaction occurs through a Diels-Alder or a co-polymerization type mechanism.
