    • Bio-based aliphatic polyesters from aliphatic diacids and bicyclic alditols: A comparative study 

      Zakharova, Elena; Martínez de Ilarduya Sáez de Asteasu, Domingo Antxon; Muñoz Guerra, Sebastián (2016)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      In this work we have prepared and compared the thermal and mechanical properties of aliphatic polyesters made from aliphatic diacids with different polymethylene chain lengths (2, 4, 6, 8) and three bicyclic sugar derived ...
    • Bio-based PBS copolyesters derived from a bicyclic D-glucitol 

      Zakharova, Elena; Alla Bedahnane, Abdelilah; Martínez de Ilarduya Sáez de Asteasu, Domingo Antxon; Muñoz Guerra, Sebastián (2015-05-12)
      Article
      Open Access
      2,4:3,5-di-O-methylene-D-glucitol (Glux-diol) was used for the synthesis of poly(butylene succinate) (PBS) copolyesters by melt polycondensation. Glux-diol possess a rigid bicyclic asymmetric structure made of two fused ...
    • Hydroxyl-functionalized amphiphilic triblock copolyesters made of tartaric and lactic acids: Synthesis and nanoparticle formation 

      Zakharova, Elena; Martínez de Ilarduya Sáez de Asteasu, Domingo Antxon; León Cavanillas, Salvador; Muñoz Guerra, Sebastián (2018-05-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Bio-based triblock copolyesters were synthesized by ring-opening polymerization of l-lactide in solution using a hydroxyl-ended polytartrate as di-functional macroinitiator. This telechelic polyester with a Mn about ...
    • Modification of properties of poly(butylene succinate) by copolymerization with tartaric acid-based monomers 

      Zakharova, Elena; Lavilla, Cristina; Alla Bedahnane, Abdelilah; Martínez de Ilarduya Sáez de Asteasu, Domingo Antxon; Muñoz Guerra, Sebastián (2014-12-01)

      The two cyclic acetals, 2,3-di-O-methylene-l-threitol and dimethyl 2,3-di-O-methylene-l-threarate, were used for the synthesis of two series of PBS copolyesters differing in which unit, butylene or succinate, was replaced, ...
    • Poly(butylene succinate) copolyesters containing cyclic acetalized tartrate units 

      Zakharova, Elena (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-02)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Utilization of carbohydrate derivatives for polymer synthesis has been paid much attention not only because of the huge abundance of resources but also because of the promising biodegradability and biocompatibility of the ...
    • Sugar-based bicyclic monomers for aliphatic polyesters: a comparative appraisal of acetalized alditols and isosorbide 

      Zakharova, Elena; Martínez de Ilarduya Sáez de Asteasu, Domingo Antxon; León Cavanillas, Salvador; Muñoz Guerra, Sebastián (2016-10-16)
      Article
      Open Access
      Three series of polyalkanoates (adipates, suberates and sebacates) were synthesized using as monomers three sugar-based bicyclic diols derived from D-glucose (Glux-diol and isosorbide) and D-mannose (Manx-diol). Polycondensations ...
    • Sustainable plastics derived from renewable resources 

      Zakharova, Elena (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-12-11)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      In this century, the major use of synthetic polymers have been as replacements for more traditional materials, particulary in packaging. Today the packaging industry is by far the major user of plastics. Another interesting ...
    • Triblock copolyesters derived from lactic acid and glucose: synthesis, nanoparticle formation and simulation 

      Zakharova, Elena; León Cabanillas, Salvador; Martínez de Ilarduya Sáez de Asteasu, Domingo Antxon; Muñoz Guerra, Sebastián (2017-07-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      ABA triblock copolyesters were synthesized by ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of l-lactide in solution initiated by a telechelic d-glucose-based polyester macroinitiator. The macroinitiator with a number-average molecular ...
