Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterAcademic


There is a general need for biobased polymers with improved properties compared to the current commercial biobased polymers. In particular there is a need for biobased materials with improved thermal and mechanical properties, comparable with (or superior to) current petrochemical based engineering plastics, like polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) or polycarbonate (PC). Such materials are not only suitable for packaging applications, but also for more demanding applications like (consumer) electronics, automotive, building & construction, where properties high temperature performance, high strength, impact resistance, or optical transparency are required.
