A retrobiosynthetic approach to generate terpene-derived polymers

Conference Dates

September 15-19, 2019


With an increasing global population and an enhanced awareness of the impact of human activities on our environment and climate, innovative concepts for resource efficiency are urgently needed.[1] This is especially relevant for synthetic polymers, that today are mainly generated from petroleum. In fact, at present only 1% of all man-made synthetic materials are generated from renewable resources, which is not aligned with the global vision of a circular bioeconomy. Upgrading bio-based molecules from wood and other sustainable raw material into activated monomers to generate biopolymers is thus a contemporary research area.[1-3]
