NFP has extensive expertise in synthetic polymer chemistry, and we focus on the innovation of new synthesis technologies. New polymers are developed by NFP from concepts through laboratory for production to realize high performance properties that are not possible with conventional polymers.
One of our current projects is development and commercialization of novel norbornane based bicyclic resins, which have great significance for chemical industry because the bulky bridged cyclic skeleton affords unique properties. We have invented new synthetic methods for synthesizing these bicylic resins. The results indicate the bicyclic resins can be produced by the addition of the corresponding carboxylic acids to norbornenyl ring in the Diels-Alder adduct without catalyst.
The synthesis, characterization and potential applications of these novel resins had been presented at international conferences. The bicylic resins can be used in a wide range of applications such as composites, coatings, adhesive, ink and plastics.
