Biogenous Pyrrolidones

From Renewable Resources to Bio-PVP

Polyvinylpyrrolidone offers a broad range of characteristics such as high aqueous solubility and low toxicity, as well as film-forming and adhesive properties, placing it into an important position in industry. This project addresses novel pathways towards biobased vinyl pyrrolidones by employing biomass-derived dicarboxylic acids. Using radical polymerisation, mainly in aqueous solution, we synthesise sustainable polyvinylpyrrolidones and assess them in terms of their physiochemical properties.
