Review of Study on Polyurethane Foams from Biomass
Due to the versatility of the biomass, this article reviews the research and development of polyurethane foams based on starch, rosin, oil, cellulose and lignin. The study on biodegradable polyurethane foams become hotspot in recent years. An awareness of the various structures and compositions of renewable resource can be used to make a strong case for an increase in its production as a vital raw material for the polyurethane industries.
