Rapid Catalytic Polymerization to Produce High Tg Engineering Bioplastics

Technology Area: Materials & Chemical

Commercial Maturity: Prototype

Abstract: Rapid, stereo-selective catalytic system to produce vinyl plastics from renewable biomass. Plastics are transparent over visible spectrum, have glass transition temperatures over 200C and display outstanding resistance to temperature, solvents, and scratching. Expected to be solution-processible. Renewable alternative with cost and performance advantages over polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA).
