[15], polar protic solvents such as methanol are better at stabilizing the phenolic OH group because they act as hydrogen bond acceptor (HBA) as well as hydrogen bond donor (HBD) groups in which the methanol oxygen acts as both an acceptor and donor.
The formation of homo- and heteroconjugates does not occur in protic solvents because the degree of hydrogen bonding in these solvents prevents the association of the dissolved species with one another.

From the results and discussion that have emanated from this study it can be concluded that the incorporation of continuous nanostructured siloxane domains in an epoxy network brings about a large reduction in the equilibrium absorption of aprotic solvents, such as THF, and a much lower reduction in the absorption of protic solvents, such as C[H.sub.3]OH.
The polar and protic solvents such as EtOH and CH3CN were afforded comparable results in terms of conversion, but the epoxide product showed poor e.e.
