A new dynamic covalent chemistry (DCC) system in the reaction of resorcinol and 1,5-pentanedial could be achieved, yielding a only soluble oligomer Noria (Noria means water wheel in Latin) in high yield, resembling a water-wheel in appearance. Application of the Noria derivatives with pendant photo-reactive groups were examined for UV-curing materials and photo-resist materials. The obtained Noria derivatives had good solubility, good film-forming ability, high thermal stability, and high photo-chemical reactivity. Furthermore, certain new ladder cyclic oligomers could be synthesized using a similar approach to that employed for the synthesis of Noria and their application as next generation resist materials was also investigated.
