Currently, much attention is given to the functionality and recyclability of waterborne polyurethane (WPU). Herein, ε-caprolactone was used as a chain extender for grafting onto perylene bisimide (PBI) and 1,4-butanediol (BDO) via ring-opening reactions to obtain PBI-PCL and BDO- PCL. Then, two kinds of WPU, namely PBI-WPU (PWPU) and BDO-WPU (BWPU), were fabricated using PBI-PCL/polytetrahydrofuran ether glycol (PTMG) and BDO-PCL/PTMG, respectively, as mixed soft segments.
