N contrast to conventional poly(α-amino acids), the Biopolymers: Applications and Trends disclosed elastomeric functional copolyester amides and copolyester urethanes possess advantageous physical, chemical, and biodegradation properties, and can be obtained in high yields. The polymers are useful as carriers of drugs or other bioactive substances. WO2013087903 A1 (2013, DSM IP ASSETS BV) discloses an alternative amino acid-based poly(ester amide), which is used for the manufacturing of a drug delivery system in ophthalmology, cardiovascular, pain management, musculoskeletal, cancer treatment, or in the delivery of vaccines.

Typically it contains about 15% combined acetic and about 40% combined butyric acid. 3 Cellulose Acetate Propionate Cellulose acetate propionate is made by treating fibrous cellulose with propionic acid (propanoic acid), acetic acid, and anhydrides in the presence of sulfuric acid.

Other lowmolecular weight reagents such as chain extenders or crosslinking agents may be added during the polyaddition process. As polyol components used as raw materials of biobased polyurethanes (bio-based PUs), there are used polyether and polyester polyols derived from natural resources. Polyether polyols are produced from sucrose, glucose, fructose, and glycerol. Polyester polyols are made from diacids and di- or tri-functional polyols. Suitable diacids include adipic acid, succinic acid, azelaic acid, and glutaric acid, etc.
