Phenolic lipids from plant material are new raw materials from renewable resources and are essential in the preparation of biopolymers , i.e., Cardanol, a meta-substituted alkyl phenol derived from cashew nut shell liquid (CNSL), a by-product of cashew industry, holds a place of biomaterial for the manufacture of many industrial products. Another renewable resource like soybean oil poly-urethane and cardanol based semiliquid amino dyes have been used to synthesize IPNs along with BPO an EGDM which have been highly cross-linked structure with both amorphous and crystalline character. Morphology, composition and thermal behaviour of these samples have been characterised and compared with different NCO/OH ratio and with different amino dyes by FTIR, TG, DSC, SEM and Elemental analysis.
