D-sorbitol and isosorbide have been indicated by the US Department of Energy among the 15 target molecules of special interest for biorefinery development. This minireview reports on isosorbide conversion into potential substitutes of petrochemicals. In the last two years, investigations on the peculiar reactivity of isosorbide have been focused on preparation of green solvents, biobased monomers for polymerization reactions, functional materials, synthesis of pharmaceuticals, surfactants, novel organocatalysts, potential flame retardants, and cross-linking agents.

Abstract

D-sorbitol and isosorbide have been indicated by the US Department of Energy among the 15 target molecules of special interest for biorefinery development. This minireview reports on isosorbide conversion into potential substitutes of petrochemicals. In the last two years, investigations on the peculiar reactivity of isosorbide have been focused on preparation of green solvents, biobased monomers for polymerization reactions, functional materials, synthesis of pharmaceuticals, surfactants, novel organocatalysts, potential flame retardants, and cross-linking agents.
