This paper reviews a part of the rich fi eld of oleochemicals, their synthesis and applications as precursors for polymers by referring to published data rather than discussing details of different reactions. The hope is to help readers in fi nding leads in the vast research area carried out over a long period of time, to avoid traps and to inspire new ideas for oil-based products and processes.
