Dr. Heather A. Meylemans, Dr. Thomas J. Groshens and Dr. Benjamin G. Harvey Synthesis of Renewable Bisphenols from Creosol ChemSusChem 5
Plastics, naturally: Creosol (2-methoxy-4-methylphenol), which can be readily derived from lignin, is selectively condensed with a series of aldehydes under stoichiometric conditions. The resulting compounds are isolated in good yields and purities. This method can be used to produce molecules that may have applications as renewable replacements for bisphenol A.
