The isosorbide is a heterocyclic compound obtained from reaction of the double dehydration of sorbitol, which is itself derived from the reaction of hydrogenation of glucose.

The advantage of isosorbide is that it can raise the use temperature and performance for moldable plastics.

Isosorbide can be substituted for other diols in order to create new polyesters, polycarbonates and polyurethanes that are partially or even completely bio-based.
