  • Publication number: 20090306240
    Abstract: The present invention involves the design of a radiation curable organic pre polymer resin material based on urethane acrylic linkage synthesized from the natural renewable resource cardanol or a derivative thereof, for coating application. These new molecules have a faster and better curing rate compared to the starting renewable resource—cardanol. This is brought about by the hydrogen bonding of the urethane linkage which leads to a pre organization of the molecules in such a way as to bring the cross linkable double bonds closer to each other. The present invention also involves a UV curable formulation of the above mentioned resins along with 2-10 parts by weight of a photopolymerization initiator. The resin, either in a formulation or alone turns into a cross linked film upon photopolymerization in presence of photoinitiator under a UV curable radiation source like a mercury vapor pressure lamp.

  • Patent number: 6432616
    Abstract: The present invention provides a water soluble polymer which is prepared by the following steps. First, a carboxyl group-containing polymer is reacted with an alkaline reagent so that a portion of the carboxyl groups are reacted in an amount sufficient to make the polymer water soluble. Then, the polymer obtained is reacted with an epoxide containing unsaturated bonds and/or heteroatoms so that 1 to 100 mole percent of the remaining carboxyl groups of the polymer are reacted with the epoxide to form ester groups via a ring-opening reaction of epoxides, wherein the heteroatom can be silicon, nitrogen, phosphorus or sulfur. The water soluble polymer of the present invention can be used as a photosensitive resin. When the photoresist composition is used for preparing printed ciruit boards, it exhibits high photosensitivity, good water dispersability, storage stability, and good adhesion to copper. In addition, the problem of sticking to the mask can be prevented.

  • Patent number: 6140385
    Abstract: Novel substituted diaryl ketones, photopolymerization compositions including the compounds, and methods using the same are disclosed. Polymerization of compositions which include the compounds of the invention may be activated by irradiating the composition with ultraviolet light using conventional techniques and radiation sources to give greatly improved cure speeds. The compounds of the invention also show a significantly elevated level of reactivity at a narrow wavelength band, with a peak emission wavelength at or near 308 nm. Because of the increased level of activity, the photoinitiator can be used in considerably lower amounts.
