Important chemicals for the production of biomass-based monomers

Furfural, which is made form biomass, was used to showcase the synthesis[1] of alternatives to petro-chemical derived polymers (polyesters). These products are identical to their petro-chemical equivalents and can be use to as drop-in substitute to manufacture bio-renewable plastics.
