Process for the preparation and utilisation of phenolic polymers with biaryl 5-5 bonds.
Our first patent approval rewards the tremendous work of our team on lignin (bio)transformation. It is related to the preparation and utilisation of polyphenols with exclusively biaryl bonds. Obtained through biocatalysed oligomerisation of 100% renewable monomers, these polyphenols exhibit antioxidant, antiradical and antimicrobial properties. Furthermore, these polymers are good plasticizers, allowing them to be considered as attractive bisphenol A substitutes. These polyphenols are 100% bio-based and non toxic, as a consequence, they are suitable for applications in the food and cosmetic industries.
