LGA is an organic precursor chemical, one of the organic “bricks” that a chemist could use in a synthesis reaction. It’s unique properties make it useful for making “green” plastics (plastics made solely from biomass)specifically in the production of biodegradable plastics. Some drug-makers have looked at using Levoglucosan as a building block for making at least a dozen drugs, including some of the widely prescribed type 2 diabetes drugs known as SGLT2 inhibitors.
