Today’s intense search for non-oil derived polymeric materials from renewable resources is also evident in the field of adhesives and binders. This Special Issue is aimed at collecting cutting-edge original research papers and reviews on the main areas where biosourced polymeric adhesives from renewable materials are under development and under particular focus, and throughout the vast variety of adhesives in use to day, from acrylics to epoxies, to polyurethanes and others.
