Aldol condensation between furans and levulinates shows a selective route for the polymers production. In this work, the influences of mole ratio between furans and levulinates as well as substrate species on the formation of polymers structure were investigated. The characterization of gel permeation chromatography and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance to the synthesized polymers suggested that the mole ratio between furans and levulinates, and substrate species exhibited a great effect on the structure of polymers. Higher mole ratios between furans and levulinates resulted in the aggravated polymerization. EMF-EL polymers showed larger molecular weight distribution compared with FFA-EL/LA polymers. This investigation further provides other key factors to the decision of polymer structure.
