The polymerization of BECy can be catalyzed by (41-44): (1) trace amount of phenol in the monomer; (2) the surface hydroxyl group and physically adsorbed water; and (3) Lewis acidic catalyzing species, including metal ions, such as [Co.
The average number of hydroxyl groups in the initiator that participate in the polymerization process was calculated by comparing the theoretical chain length with the chain length calculated by NMR, as shown in Eq.

When the films are cured with PIH, some hydroxyl group of PUA may be consumed by PIH, and some hydrophilic groups may be shielded by the covalently crosslinked networks, resulting in the reduction of their surface wettability.

Function-structure analysis indicated 1) flavonoids with more free phenolic hydroxyl groups showed relative higher antiplatelet and antiradical activities; 2) substitution of 7-OH of A ring affected antiplatelet capacities of flavanones apparently; 3) free 3-OH of C ring was important for both the antiplatelet and antiradical activities of flavonol (quercetin) and flavones (rutin isoquercitrin); 4) C ring C2-C3 double bond and B ring 3'-4'orthodihydroxy might be important for its antiradical function.
