Abstract
At present, there are opaque candles based-on hydrogenated vegetable oil waxes, and premium transparent container gel candles based on mineral oil gel. However, there are no commercialized technologies for transparent gel candles based-on vegetable oils. The purpose of this project is to synthesize a class of new polymers which can form a trasparent vegetable oil gel for making the clear container candle
