- ... BACKGROUND: Commercial synthesis of polyunsaturated monomers, like polyester resins, involves an energy‐demanding esterification process, which is usually carried out at 150–220 °C and long reaction times (>12 h). In addition, most of these monomers come from petrochemical sources and, therefore, are not renewable. In this research, a new polyunsaturated monomer was synthesized using crude glycero ...
