Enzymatic synthesis of biobased polyesters using 2,5-bis(hydroxymethyl)furan as the building block.

Abstract

2,5-Bis(hydroxymethyl)furan is a highly valuable biobased rigid diol resembling aromatic monomers in polyester synthesis. In this work, it was enzymatically polymerized with various diacid ethyl esters by Candida antarctica Lipase B (CALB) via a three-stage method. A series of novel biobased furan polyesters with number-average molecular weights (M(n… (More)
