    Abstract

    Biobased components for the development of environmentally friendly, durable products are being described. The potential and versatility of isosorbide diesters as subsitutes for the currently phthalate based plasticisers for PVC and other resins, is shown. Also high solid alkyd resins for decorative paints, completely based on commercially available renewable resources are being described. Paints comprising alkyd resins based on inulin or sucrose and unsaturated fatty acids or oils, showed very good gloss, excellent levelling and a low intrinsic viscosity making them suitable to be used in high solid alkyd paints. A new concept was used to prepare effective, cobalt free, drying catalysts for alkyd paint systems. Iron in combination with ascrobic acid (vitamin C), and optionally other ligands, was found to be a very effective drying catalyst.
