This short outlines the latest advances within the construction of polyols and polyurethanes from renewable assets, quite often vegetable oils, lignocellulosic biomass, starch, and protein. the common methods for the creation of polyols from all the above pointed out feedstocks are brought and the homes of the consequent polyols and polyurethanes also are discussed.

Ozonolysis-derived polyols typically have low molecular weights due to loss of part of the fatty acid chains that result from double bond cleavages [1]. 2 Vegetable Oil-Based Polyols and Polyurethanes 27 reported to have varied properties, such as hydroxyl numbers from 152 to 260 mg KOH/g and acid numbers from 2 to 52 mg KOH/g [58–60]. The high acid numbers are attributed to carboxylic acids, which form during ozonation processes and cannot be reduced to alcohols under subsequent hydrogenation conditions [58–60].

Castor oil can be converted to polyols with higher molecular weights and lower hydroxyl numbers by ethoxylation (alkoxylation with ethylene oxide) or propoxylation (alkoxylation with propylene oxide) [94]. Due to the incorporation of long polyether chains from castor oil, high quality flexible PUs such as foam mattresses can be produced. 7 shows a schematic synthetic route for castor oil-based polyols via ethoxylation. In addition to these two modification methods, mixing castor oil with petrochemical-derived polyols is also an effective way to obtain fast reaction rates with isocyanates and to fine-tune product properties in the PU production process.
