Dihydroxy Monomer Bisphenol-A

or BPA used to make a bisepoxide
and polycarbonates.

Two-part expoxides are one of the simplest and most widely used synthetic adhesives in the world.
Yes, the diamine part smells some but with the BPA diepoxide, it will stick almost anything to almost anything else.
The two monomers involved are a diepoxide such as that from BPA,
and a diamine such as hexamethylenediamine.
BPA also reacts with phosgene to make polycarbonates
BPA is bisphenol-A which has the 3D structure below.
