Polyesters derived from 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid and 1,4:3,6-dianhydrohexitols have been prepared. These polyesters are made solely from monomers derived from renewable resources such as starch and fructose. As shown by thermogravimetric analysis, all materials have excellent stability against thermal decomposition. For sufficient degrees of polymerization, the glass transition of these polyesters, as determined by differential scanning calorimetry, is about 185°C. The degree of crystallinity, as studied by wide-angle X-ray scattering, is low for all materials investigated.
