NGP2 Symposium and GreenSolRes Workshop postponed
RWTH Aachen postponed the first GreenSolRes workshop within the NGP2 symposium on 4th to 5th March 2020 as a precautionary measure against the spread of Coronavirus in the region. New date to be announced.
Joint publication by LIKAT & HENKEL
An article “Properties of Novel Polyesters Made from Renewable 1,4‐Pentanediol” co-authored by LIKAT and HENKEL has been published in ChemSusChem 2019, Vol.12. This open access paper describes preparation of fully renewable polyesters based on 1,4‐pentanediol (1,4‐PDO), obtained from biobased γ‐valerolactone. Excellent product yields were observed with homogeneous hydrogenation catalysts. These bio-based polyester polyols are expected to have several applications in the CASE (coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers) market.
Journal publication by LIKAT
LIKAT has published an open access article “Hydrogenation of Polyesters to Polyether Polyols” in ChemSusChem 2019, Vol.12. In this study, they converted Polyesters to Polyethers using a combination of catalysts. Further on these Polyethers were converted into Polyurethanes, opening up the possibility of adding novel Polyols to the Polyurethane chemist’s toolbox.
Heartiest welcome to our new partners
