Molecularly well-defined tackifiers with up to 100% bio-content were prepared from isosorbide and various cyclic anhydrides. These tackifiers are tacky over a broad temperature range and exhibit high maximum tack (ca. 2000 kPa). Structural modifications shift the temperature at which maximum tack is observed and change the viscosity of the tackifiers.
