Radical polymerization of biobased monomers in aqueous dispersed media


This review highlights the design and synthesis of biobased monomers from renewable resources for the preparation of latexes in aqueous dispersed media. Biobased polymers have been widely studied and are still a hot topic as environmental concerns and regulations require the use of green chemistry principles as guidelines for the synthesis of new polymer materials. Consideration should equally be given to green polymerization processes such as industrially relevant aqueous emulsion and suspension polymerizations. However, the synthesis and polymerization of biobased monomers through polymerization in aqueous dispersed media has not been sufficiently explored. Hence, constraints and opportunities arising from previous research work in this area will be presented focusing on aqueous (mini)emulsion and suspension polymerizations.
