Diels-Alder to combine conjugated fatty acid and acrylated monomers?

Question asked by Conor Hawkins on Aug 16, 2018

I have some questions about Diels-Alder reaction kinetics.  I have been trying to combine a conjugated fatty acid with TMPTA and keep gelling the reaction.  Do I need more of an inhibitor?  Am I allowing the reaction to go on too long, or at too high a temperature?  Would I have better luck with a diacrylate?
