What is it about?
A review of the different approaches in the development of multifunctional epoxy systems. Epoxy resins that behave both thermoplastic and thermoset are now the norm in R&D. Multifunctionality here is viewed in terms of toughness and flexibility, rapid curing, self-healing, reprocessability, recyclability, high temperature stability and conductivity.

Why is it important?
This is a different look on multifunctional epoxy systems, where stable organic radical polymers is premised as a route for multifunctional character. Novel ideas on the synthesis of conductive, high heat stable materials from precursors such as benzoxazines, tannin, lignin, cardanol, etc. were presented in an appropriate section. Multifunctional epoxy system can satisfy the requirements of the 4.0 industry. In summary, gaps in the literature were identified for conductive epoxies, rapid curing systems and highlighted sustainability in the manufacture of epoxy resin.
