Abstract Acrylate and methacrylate esters are important monomers for the coatings and adhesives industry. Polyacrylate polymers are an essential ingredient in many of the current water borne coatings and paint formulations, including wall paints. The introduction of water borne paints has led to a vast reduction in VOC (volatile organic components) emissions. Nevertheless, acrylate binders are still produced from petrochemical feedstocks. Hence, there is a growing demand for biobased acrylate resins that combine the environmental benefits of water borne coatings, with the use of sustainable, renewable feedstocks.
