  • Publication number: 20220031907
    Abstract: Described herein are compositions composed of a radiopaque agent and a cyanoacrylate monomer. These compositions cure in situ when administered to a subject and, thus, have numerous biomedical applications. The presence of the radiopaque agent allows the practitioner to visualize the compositions during and immediately after administration to the subject. The compositions are non-toxic and shelf-stable, and can be sterilized to prevent microbial growth. The compositions can be pre-mixed prior to sale and distribution, reducing the need for special training in their use.

  • Publication number: 20190169478
    Abstract: Dual-cure compositions for use in high temperature adhesive applications, and particularly for temporarily adhesively attaching one substrate to another substrate, are provided. These dual-cure adhesives are silicone-based compositions that can be B-staged by exposure UV radiation to provide initial green strength, followed by a C-stage cure to give adhesives that can survive high temperature processes above 200° C., especially above 300° C., yet easy to debond afterwards to allow separation of the top and bottom substrates.

  • Patent number: 10280349
    Abstract: The present invention relates to one-component UV and thermal curable temporary adhesives for use in high temperature applications, and particularly to adhesives for the temporary attachment of one substrate to another substrate, the adhesives comprising (i) the partial hydrosilylation reaction product of the reaction between the vinyl groups on 1,3,5,7-tetravinyl-1,3,5,7-tetramethylcyclotetrasiloxane and the terminal Si—H hydrogens on a silane or siloxane having terminal Si—H hydrogens, and (ii) a photo and/or thermal radical cure initiator. Also encompassed are assemblies including such an adhesive and methods of using the adhesives.

  • Publication number: 20160068720
    Abstract: A debondable adhesive composition comprises (A) the hydrosilation reaction product of the reaction between the vinyl groups on 1,3,5,7-tetravinyl-1,3,5,7-tetramethylcyclotetra-siloxane and the terminal Si—H hydrogens on a silane or siloxane having terminal Si—H hydrogens, (B) a cross-linker for the hydrosilation reaction product, and (C) a metal catalyst and/or a radical initiator. In further embodiments, this invention is an assembly of a substrate and a carrier for the substrate in which the debondable adhesive composition is disposed between the substrates, and a method for fabricating that assembly. The debondable adhesive composition maintains its adhesion at temperatures of 300° C. or greater, and is mechanically debondable at room temperature at a force less than 5N/25 mm.

  • Patent number: 8927759
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for producing 2-cyanoacetic acid anhydride, comprising the steps of a) preparing a reaction mixture, containing as reactants 2-cyanoacetic acid, and at least one C4-20 carboxylic acid anhydride in at least one organic solvent, wherein the molar ratio of 2-cyanoacetic acid to C4-20 carboxylic acid anhydride in said reaction mixture is greater than 1.5:1, and b) subjecting the reaction mixture to a temperature of 0° C. to 100° C. to form 2-cyanoacetic acid anhydride. The present invention also relates to process for producing 2-cyanoacetic acid esters, 2-cyanoacetic acid amides and/or 2-cyanoacetic acid thioesters from 2-cyanoacetic acid anhydride.
