Synthesis and polymerization of bio-based acrylates: a review

Author affiliations

Abstract

Acrylates and polyacrylates have been produced massively due to their interesting applications like Plexiglas. However, the contemporary issues of fossil depletion associated with climate change have raised serious concerns. As a result, utilization of renewable resources such as lignocellulosic materials and the development of greener processes have been investigated intensively. Herein, we review the preparation of competitive (meth)acrylates and the corresponding polymers made from bio-renewable resources with a specific focus on lignocellulose. While covering a few families of biosynthons to produce acrylates through different synthetic pathways, we also analyze the promising properties of the resulting materials.
