Polyurethanes, a major class of polymers conventionally derived from petroleum products, find applications in numerous sectors. Limited fossil resources, their extensive usage, large carbon footprint and alarming environmental issues motivated the research community worldwide in finding alternate and renewable routes for one of the key raw materials, polyols and isocyanate precursors. There are several reports available in the literature showing the techno-economic viability of bio-based… 
Polyols and polyurethanes from renewable sources: past, present, and future—part 2: plant-derived materials
Polyols are basically compounds containing multiple reactive hydroxyl groups and one of the major constituting elements in making polyurethane and polyurethane foam. Traditionally, the polyols are
Preparation and Properties of Autocatalytic Biobased Waterborne Polyol from Rosin Based Epoxy Resin
