Abstract

original image

Front Cover: Recent progress on renewable monomers and polymers from natural terpenes, terpenoids, and rosin is reviewed. These natural resources are a class of hydrocarbon-rich biomass derived from plants and trees with abundance and low cost, holding much potential for utilization as sustainable organic feedstocks for green plastics and composites. Further details can be found in the article by P. A. Wilbon, F. Chu,* and C. Tang* on page 8.
