This work aimed to synthesise new bio-based solvents from bio-based platform molecules and dimethyl carbonate (DMC) as alternatives for traditional solvents. This work extended the scope of the DMC chemistry to including acid catalysts. Hansen Solubility Parameters in Practice (HSPiP) software was utilised as an effective tool to identify suitable bio-based solvents candidates.
