As a "green technology", the light curing technology which is not only energy-saving, environmental protection but also economical and efficient, has been applied in many fields. The use of natural renewable resources to produce photocurable resins is of great significance to the sustainable development of photocurable technology. As a kind of natural renewable resource, itaconic acid with unsaturated double bond and two carboxyl groups could replace acrylic acid, hexanedioic acid and other petrochemical resources to synthesize various UV light curable unsaturated resins. The synthetic properties of the resin were excellent. The progress of preparation of itaconic acid UV light curable resins was reviewed, including epoxy itaconic acid resin, itaconic acid polyester, itaconic acid polyester acrylate, itaconic acid polyurethane acrylate, etc. The UV light curable resins from itaconic acid would have important application value in the fields of coatings, biomedicine and 3D printing, which could provide a new approach for the high value utilization of biomass products.

Key words: biomass based, itaconic acid, UV light curable resin, modification
