Over the years, eco-friendly raw biomass is being investigated to develop novel green monomer and oligomer components for sustainable polymer materials synthesis. The use of naturally obtained biomass can reduce the dependence on petrochemical suppliers and the impact of petroleum prices. Polymer materials obtained from biomass are a competitive alternative comparing with those made from petrochemicals. Domestically and industrially used vegetable oil derivatives are considered widely available, while cellulose derivatives are the most abundant natural polymers. Biobased acrylic polymers developed from vegetable oils and cellulose are very popular nowadays. Using acrylic derivatives of vegetable oils and cellulose as naturally obtained materials leads to long-lasting biopolymers with a wide range of high exploitation properties and applications. The characteristics of vegetable oil- and cellulose-based acrylate resins of high-biorenewable carbon content are suitable for industrial application, while their role is still underestimated. A brief analysis of biomass-derived biopolymer resin compositions, properties, and applications is critically outlined herein.
