18 The DA equilibrium between growing species bearing respectively furan and maleimide end groups. considered as being entirely based on renewable resources. 17) which produced, as expected, a much stiffer polyester macromolecule and hence a high Tg [37]. The range of furan polyester structures is currently being widened to include other diols and to study random and block copolymers. In a very different vein, the purpose of applying the DA reaction to synthesize furan polymers stems from two considerations: (i) the fact that furans are particularly well suited to participate in that coupling interaction, functioning as dienes; and (ii) the thermal reversibility of the DA reaction which opens the way to the preparation of intelligent materials, which are moreover easily recyclable [37, 39, 40].
