February 2023 | SP-40-005 is the Ethyl-acetoxyacrylate (EAA), a reactive precursor with a low boiling point (84-85°C) and used in a large range of chemical reactions. This 2-oxyacrylate functionalized by an acetyl group can be used as monomer in conventional radical polymerization [...

January 2023 | SP-9S-5-008 is a monofunctional epoxy building-block synthesized from vanillin. In addition to the glycidyl ether functional group, this aromatic product is also bearing an aldehyde moiety in para position which makes the Vanillin monoglycidyl ether ...

December 2022 | SP-01-003 is a fluorinated alkyl chain functionalized with a phosphonic acid moiety. This building block is of high interest in coating applications since the phosphonic acid group brings anchoring properties toward metallic surfaces [...

November 2022 | SP-1P-6-003 is a poly(ethylene glycol) monofunctionalized with a thiol end group. The molecular weight of the PEG chain is 500g/mol, that leads to a liquid product at room temperature. The thiol group can react by thiol-ene coupling reaction with various (...

October 2022 | SP-9S-5-004 is one of our sustainable epoxy resins synthesized from D-isosorbide. By bearing two epoxy groups, this resin can be used as sugar-derived resins in many applications such as the development of new hybrids or composites as well as coatings for...

September 2022 | MAPC1 (SP-41-003) and its acidic form MAPC1 acid (SP-41-007) are ones of the most sell and used phophonate functional monomers from SPECIFIC POLYMERS R&D product portfolio. Indeed, the specificity of the phosphorus containing (...

July 2022 | Resveratrol is a sustainable phenolic compound  which can be further converted into high-performance epoxy exhibiting very interesting properties such as a high glass-transition temperature (Tg) or flame-retardancy. Food waste can be a potential source of resveratrol [...

June 2022 | TMP tricyclocarbonate is a crosslinking agent of interest for the synthesis of non-isocyanate polyurethane (NiPU) thermoset materials. As explained above, these innovative materials can substitute conventional polyurethane (PU) in various application fields...

May 2022 | Poly(pentafluorostyrene) - SP-LRI-P-009 - is a fluorinated polymer synthesized by free radical polymerization. This fluorinated polymer is of high interest in very different kind of application especially because of its thermal stability as well as oil and water repellency....

April 2022 | Butanediol bis(cyclocarbonate) (SP-68-021) is a low molecular weight building-blocks bearing two cyclocarbonate moieties. This functional molecule is obtained through a cyclocarbonate reaction in between the corresponding epoxy and carbone dioxide (CO2). ...
