Abstract in another language

A few interesting examples of plant-derived naturally originated vinyl monomers are known. These plant-derived monomers can be easily classified into three categories (olefinic, styrenic and acrylate types) in resemblance to their chemical structures with the corresponding petro-derived monomers. One of these monomers, alpha-methylene-gamma-butyrolactone (MBL) (Tulipalin A) belongs to the class of sesquiterpene lactone family and considered as cyclic analog of most common vinyl monomer methyl methacrylate (MMA). By virtue of its exo-methylene double bond, it can be used as a naturally originated vinyl monomer in order to synthesize biopolymers. Having a natural source origin inculcates biocompatibility, biodegradability, eco-friendly, and renewable characteristics in the resulting polymers. The present chapter highlighted the structure, synthesis, properties, and specialty polymers obtained from this naturally occurring Tulipalin A monomer.
