Indole as a new sustainable aromatic unit for high quality biopolyesters

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The aim of this research was to use indole as a new sustainable aromatic unit for polyesters. A series of new polyesters were synthesised by the polycondensation of an indole-based dicarboxylate and five potentially bio-based diols. The new polyesters are amorphous, have superior thermal quality, and can form clear transparent films.
