Synthesis of polyester using (dodec-2-enyl)succinic anhydride and
renewable glycerol was carried out to produce a polymer with controlled
functionality. Conventional (hot plate) heating was found suitable to
obtain oligomers, while the microwave heating was useful only at the
first step of the process.
