Self-cured polymers from non-drying oil

Pongamia glabra seed oil (PGSO) – a non-edible, non-drying oil; a sustainable resource has found application as alkyds, epoxies and polyesteramides in paints and coatings. Generally, PGSO based polymeric coatings are obtained by curing at elevated temperature. Efforts have been made to cure PGSO at room temperature by simple route modification.
