Dicarboxylic acids derived from plant oils are attractive intermediates for the synthesis of polymer materials. Similar to polyethylene, the incorporation of long methylene sequences enables polymer crystallization and renders polyesters hydrophobic. Long-chain aliphatic polyesters that incorporate the full length of the plant oil methylene sequences possess high melting points (Tm > 100 °C) and crystallization temperatures, suitable for thermoplastic processing. This differs from shorter chain… CONTINUE READING
