Acetal metathesis polymerization (AMP): A method for synthesizing biorenewable polyacetals

Author affiliations

Abstract

Polyalkylene acetals are synthesized from simple bio-derived diols and diethoxymethane via a novel technique involving interchange of acetal functional groups. This Acetal Metathesis Polymerization (AMP) method provides a route to polyacetals that are designed to degrade under abiotic conditions via simple acid-catalyzed hydrolysis.
