  • Patent number: 11046816
    Abstract: Disclosed are a fluorine-silicon-containing polyphosphate ester and method for preparation thereof, having a chemical structural formula of: wherein R1 is R2 is n=10˜100. The fluorine-silicon-containing polyphosphate ester of the present invention uses silicon phosphorus and fluorine for improving flame retardancy. Phosphorus catalyzes the system to form a phosphorus-rich carbon layer, performing a protective-layer function and thereby preventing further breakdown of the epoxy resin. The silicon-containing epoxy resin forms a silica-containing carbon layer during the process of combustion, strengthening the carbon-layer structure and further improving the protective function of the carbon-layer. The introduction of elemental fluorine improves the thermal stability of the epoxy resin, thereby improving the flame retardancy performance of the system.

  • Patent number: 10301422
    Abstract: A composition containing two different silane-functional polymers, only one of the two polymers having terminal groups of formula (I). The composition has a surprisingly rapid skin forming time and low viscosity, crosslinks quickly even without the use of EHS-critical catalysts such as organotin compounds or DBU, and cures to a non-sticky material with good strength and elasticity. Also relates to a method for accelerating the curing of a silane-crosslinking composition by adding to it a further silane-functional polymer having terminal groups of formula (I).

  • Patent number: 10183270
    Abstract: A particulate sorbent includes a carbonaceous and/of non-carbonaceous particulate matter encapsulated in sol-gel sorbent matrix where microparticles of a porous sol-gel metal oxide network display a high surface area with small cross-section pores and a nanoparticle or microparticle filler that is a carbonaceous and/or non-carbonaceous particulate matter. The particulate sorbent is prepared by dispersing carbonaceous and/of non-carbonaceous particulate matter in a mixture of a metal oxide precursor, water, catalyst and optionally a solvent and a polymer functionalized to react with the metal oxide precursor. Catalysis is by acid followed by base to separate hydrolysis in the sol with condensation to a gel to give a highly porous gel. The gel is subsequently fractured into sorbent particles. The sorbent particles can be used for sampling or separating analytes.

  • Patent number: 10083859
    Abstract: In the present method, a substrate to be processed, having an interlayer insulation film, is prepared (step 1). The interlayer insulation film is subjected to dry etching, while using a mask layer, thereby forming recesses (step 2). Residue is removed by dry ashing (step 3). A coating is formed on the entire surface by means of a gas process using a coating compound gas, with a molecular structure having at one terminal a first substitution group that reacts with and bonds with the surface of the interlayer insulation film, and at the other terminal a second substitution group that is hydrophilic (step 4). The coating is removed by wet cleaning (step 5). Wiring is formed in the recesses (step 6).
