Isosorbide Production Cost Analysis 2020
Isosorbide is known as a bicyclic chemical compound belonging to the group of diols as well as the oxygen-containing heterocycles, with two fused furan rings. The initial material for isosorbide is a D-sorbitol, that is derived by the catalytic hydrogenation of D-glucose. It is, in turn, created by the hydrolysis of starch. Isosorbide is known as a plant-based platform chemical from which biodegradable derivatives for various functions can be derived. Isosorbide is currently of great scientific as well as technical interest as a monomer building block for biopolymeric polycarbonates, polyesters, polyurethanes, and epoxides. It is also finds its applications as a humectant and as an osmotic diuretic in medicines.
In appearance, isosorbide is a crystalline, white, highly hydrophilic solid. The two secondary hydroxy groups contained within the V-shaped bicyclic system own distinct orientations leading to distinct chemical reactivities. This permits a selective monoderivatization of isosorbide. The hydroxy group in the fifth position is known to be endo oriented that forms a hydrogen bond using oxygen atom in the adjacent furan ring. This makes the hydroxy group in the fifth position more nucleophilic as well as more reactive than the exo-oriented hydroxy group in the second position.
