In light of recent demands of biobased materials, vegetable oils seem to have acquired special privileges among product designers as a feedstock chemical for preparation of potential polymeric materials. This chapter demonstrates different routes for preparation polymers from vegetable oil, highlighting the effects of reinforcement and nano reinforcement on these polymers’ physical properties.
