In this thesis properties of isosorbide, that is as a precursor for the synthesis of new
biobased polymers were studied. Synthetic methods for obtaining of vinylated compounds
were obtained from the literature and tested on isosorbide. During this research monovinyl
isosorbide was synthesized. Further, different polymerization methods we investigated and the new polymer (oligomer) was synthesized. In addition, the advantages and disadvantages of methods for isosorbide vinylation and polymerization were analyzed. The next goals and prospects were defined.
Consequently, new isosorbide based polymer was synthesized, that can replace fossil based polymers in the future.
