Bio-based chemicals


Bio-based aromatics. Aromatics in the chemical industry are primarily isolated from petroleum. In contrast, Susterea patented technology allows us to easily access a coumalate platform to selectively target a vast spectrum of functionalized aromatic systems that span specialty and commodity chemicals.


Susterea can obtain tailored aromatics in a high-yielding, one-pot cascade reaction, free of transition metals. Methyl coumalate is a single step away from natural sugars and is a versatile springboard for diversification - regarding both the aromatic substituents and market sectors. Susterea's alternative chemical conversion pathway to aromatic molecules affords the opportunity to leverage intermediates and molecules not economically accessible via petroleum based conversion pathways.
