December 2021 | SP-1P-0-005 is a Poly(ethylene glycol), α,ω-bis(carboxylic acid). PEG polymers are well-known polymers in the biomedical field since it provides biocompatibility and stealthiness. For instance, PEG derivatives have been used as biocompatible drug carriers or as nanoparticles coatings in nanomedicine....

November 2021 | SP-49-024 is an acrylamide monomer bearing D,L-homocysteine thiolactone moiety. Over the last decade, five-membered ring thiolactones (γ-thiolactones) have received renewed interest with the work of Du Prez et al. in the field of functional polymer synthesis....

October 2021 | SP-1P-0-003 is a poly(ethylene glycol) functionalized with a five-membered cyclic carbonate group on each chain extremity. This R&D product is synthesized by using corresponding diglycidylether-PEO and CO2 as raw materials in the presence of catalyst.(...

September 2021 | SP-3-00-006 is a bis-aldehyde monomers synthesized from vanillin alcohol that can be a sustainable precursor extracted from lignin. Aldehyde moieties can undergo a  variety of chemical reactions with nucleophiles, resulting in both reversible and irreversible bonds.(...

July 2021 | SP-68-029 is a sustainable aromatic diacrylate monomer that can be of great interest for the synthesis of thermoset materials either by thermal or photocuring implementation processes. This monomer is synthesized from vanillin alcohol that can be a sustainable precursor extracted from...

Year 2020 | Once again, the 2020 top ten R&D products sold by SPECIFIC POLYMERS is representative of the plurisdisiplinarity of the research conducted within the company. Our monomers appear to be of high interest in the fields of energy (Batteries, Fuel Cells), Environment...

May 2021 | 4-Vinyloxybutyl acrylate is an acrylate monomer bearing a vinyl functional moiety. This monomer has been shown to be of high interest in various patents. For instance, it can be used (i) in active energy ray-polymerizable optical stereolithography resin composition (...

April 2021 | This month, we would like to highlight R&D product SP-8P-2-006 that correspond to octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane (also called D4) bearing triethoxysilane functional groups. This cyclic siloxane based building blocks is of high interest in the design and conception of sol-gel materials with...

March 2021 | SP-1P-9-015 is a telechelic PEO/PPO-based polymer. This crosslinker is functionalised by maleimide end-groups which can be involved in several chemical reactions such as: Michael addition, Diels-Alder reaction and radical polymerisation. [1]...

February 2021 | Once again, our methacrylate cyclocarbonate monomer, GMA (SP-40-001) [13818-44-5], is the product of the month. This R&D product presents a great interest in many application fields and this is the reason why that it remains among the products that you appreciated...
