  • Patent number: 9724686
    Abstract: A sulfonated polyethylene is achieved where a polymethylene backbone with substituted methylene units having one or two sulfonic acid groups or salts of the sulfonic acid groups periodically, quasiperiodically, or quasirandomly separated from each other by unsubstituted methylene units along the polymer backbone. The sulfonated polyethylene is prepared by suspending a sulfonated ester polyethylene in a polar aprotic non-solvent, whereupon the addition of a strong base saponifies the esters with the dissolving of the resulting sulfonated polyethylene having salts of sulfonic acid groups.

  • Patent number: 9587062
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for formation of block copolymers using a Single Electron Transfer Living Radical Polymerization (SET-LRP) process. The process can be used to form di and tri-block copolymers from vinyl monomers. In one embodiment the SET-LRP process comprises initially forming a macroinitiator using SET-LRP to form a first block of a di or tri-block copolymer and then using SET-LRP to form additional blocks of the copolymer. The produced block copolymers have very narrow polydispersity indexes and controlled molecular weights. The process permits incorporation of photoinitiators in any of the block formation reactions. The method also includes purification processes that result in a block copolymer having very low color making it useful in a variety of applications. In one application block copolymers prepared according to the present process can be used in hot-melt adhesives.
