  • Publication number: 20190315892
    Abstract: The present teachings are directed at 1,1-di substituted alkene monomers (e.g., methylene beta-ketoester monomers), methods for producing the same, polymerizable compositions including a methylene beta-ketoester monomer, and polymers, compositions and products formed therefrom. The monomer preferably is a high purity monomer. In the method for producing the methylene beta-ketoesters of the invention, a beta-ketoester may be reacted with a source of formaldehyde. The methylene beta-ketoester monomers may be used in monomer-based products (e.g., inks, adhesives, coatings, sealants or reactive molding) and polymer-based products (e.g., fibers, films, sheets, medical polymers, composite polymers and surfactants).

  • Publication number: 20170342011
    Abstract: The present teachings are directed at polymers, polymeric compositions, polymerizable compositions, and articles including a 1,1-disubstituted alkene monomers (e.g., methylene beta-diketone monomers) and one or more formulation materials. The monomer preferably is a high purity monomer. Preferably, the amount of ketals (e.g., in the polymerizable composition) is less than about 100 ppm and/or the amount of latent acid-forming impurities (e.g., in the polymerizable composition) is less than about 100 ppm (e.g., based on the total weight of the monomer). Preferably, the methylene beta-diketone monomer is a high purity monomer having a purity of about 95 weight percent or more. The monomer(s) may be employed in compositions and products, including monomer-based products (e.g., inks, adhesives, coatings, sealants or reactive molding) and polymer-based products (e.g., fibers, films, sheets, medical polymers, composite polymers and surfactants).

  • Patent number: 9828324
    Abstract: The present teachings are directed at 1,1-disubstituted alkene monomers (e.g., methylene beta-diketone monomers), methods for producing the same, and compositions and products formed therefrom. In the method for producing the monomer, a beta-diketone is preferably reacted with a source of formaldehyde in a modified Knoevenagel reaction optionally in the presence of an acidic or basic catalyst, and optionally in the presence of an acidic or non-acidic solvent, to form reaction complex. The reaction complex may be an oligomeric complex. The reaction complex is subjected to vaporization in order to isolate the monomer. The monomer(s) may be employed in compositions and products, including monomer-based products (e.g., inks, adhesives, coatings, sealants or reactive molding) and polymer-based products (e.g., fibers, films, sheets, medical polymers, composite polymers and surfactants).
