Congratulations Stefan!

A big well done to Stefan Cairns on having his work accepted into Polymer Chemistry! It reports a family of monomers built from renewable resources and use the elimination of formaldehyde or acetone to access aliphatic polyesters, circumventing challenging monomer syntheses to make these functionalised polymers.

A broad scope of aliphatic polyesters prepared by elimination of small molecules from sustainable 1,3-dioxolan-4-ones
