Abstract

The growing concerns over environment challenges, energy security, and sustainability, together with the desire to reduce the dependency on crude oil have intensified worldwide efforts in producing bioproducts from renewable sources, e.g., bio-based polymers and resins. Production of bio-based chemicals and materials to substitute for the petroleum-based products would play a very important role in sustainable development. This chapter introduces the background and motivation as well as synthetic routes and applications ...
