Functorial properties of the correspondence between commutative BV -algebras and L-algebras are investigated. The category of L-algebras with L-morphisms is characterized as a certain category of pureBV -algebras with pureBV -morphisms. The functor assigning to a commutative BV -algebra the L-algebra given by higher derived brackets is also shown to have a left adjoint. Cieliebak-Fukaya-Latschev’s machinery of IBL - and BV -morphisms is further developed with introducing the logarithm of a map.
