This work deals with the synthesis and characterization of a new class of copolyesters derived from isosorbide, which combines three useful properties: the use of monomers based on renewable resources, biodegradability, and high glass-transition temperatures (Tg), which show a linear dependence on the composition. Large fractions of cyclic copolymers, evidenced by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, are characteristic for the optimization of the reaction conditions.
