Summary:
Iowa State University researchers have developed a catalyst-free, room-temperature synthesis route to create a thermosetting polymer from biorenewable materials.

Development Stage:
Description:
Iowa State University researchers have demonstrated the production of thermoset from biorenewable sources.  Beginning with acrylated, epoxidized soybean oil, the process involves reaction with aziridine followed by cross-linking using succinic, citric and other biobased diacids.  While the resultant properties were dependent upon the diacid used and the degree of acrylation of the soybean oil, all of the polymers had an amorphous structure.

Advantage:
• Thermosetting polymer made from predominantly biorenewable materials.
• Room temperature reaction with high conversion rate minimizes operating expenses.
Application:
Thermoset polymer with high renewable content
