Poly(isosorbide carbonate) was synthesized by melt polycondensation of dimethyl carbonate and isosorbide using lithium acetylacetonate as the catalyst. The reaction conditions were optimized. A series of poly(aliphatic diol-co-isosorbide carbonate)s were also synthesized by melt polycondensation of DMC with isosorbide and equimolar amounts of aliphatic diols (1,4-butanediol, 1,5-pentanediol, 1,6-hexanediol, and 1,4-cyclohexane dimethanol) in the presence of LiAcac and the TiO2/SiO2-based catalyst (TSP-44).
