    Abstract: The invention relates to polymeric cobalt bearing compounds, in particular for use as metal-rubber adhesion promoters (RAPs) in tires, belts and hoses. Known active substances are a.o. cobalt stearates, naphthenates, resinates, decanoates, boro-decanoates and many other forms of acylates. While these substances appear to enhance the metal-rubber adhesion, all of them also come with significant drawbacks, a.o. linked to the relatively high bioavailability of cobalt in these substances. The invention concerns more particularly a polymer comprising Co-carboxylate sequences, with a Co content of at least 3% by weight, and with a mean molecular weight of more than 2000. Several synthesis methods, allowing to reach relatively high Co concentrations in the polymer, illustrate the invention. The invented polymers show a strongly reduced bioavailability of Co compared to currently available products, as demonstrated by aqueous leaching tests.

    Abstract: The present invention relates to a monomodal coupled diene elastomer having a silanol functional group in the middle of the chain, to its process of preparation and to a rubber composition which can be used in particular in the manufacture of tire covers, having improved hysteresis and physical properties in the vulcanized state and an improved processing in the raw state, comprising a monomodal diene polymer having a silanol functional group in the middle of the chain and a reinforcing inorganic filler. The process for obtaining this elastomer having a silanol functional group in the middle of the chain comprises a reaction of the diene monomer(s) and of the polymerization initiator in the presence of a chelating polar agent, a reaction of the living diene polymer with a coupling agent and then, after hydrolysis, a recovery of the coupled diene polymer having a functional group in the middle of the chain.

  • Publication number: 20120329882
    Abstract: Biocompatible hydrogels made from cross-linked catechol-borate ester polymers are disclosed, along with methods of synthesizing and using such hydrogels. The hydrogels of the present invention are prepared by boronic acid-catechol complexation between catechol-containing macromonomers and boronic acid-containing cross-linkers. The resulting hydrogels are pH-responsive and self-healing, and can be used in a number of different biomedical applications, including in surgical implants, in surgical adhesives, and in drug delivery systems is data provides further evidence of the viability of using the disclosed hydrogels for in vivo in biomedical applications.

  • Patent number: 8338547
    Abstract: To provide a structure material having excellent mechanical characteristics and a functional material having excellent regularity, provided are a polymer alloy which is composed of at least two components of thermoplastic resins and of which the structure can be controlled finely and evenly dispersed and a production method of the polymer alloy. With respect to a polymer alloy composed of at least two or more components of thermoplastic resins, a precursor (A) of at least one thermoplastic resin among the thermoplastic resin components composing the polymer alloy is chemically reacted in the co-presence of the remaining thermoplastic resin component (B1) and/or a precursor (B2) of the thermoplastic resin component to induce spinodal decomposition, so that it is made possible to obtain a polymer alloy having excellent regularity and of which the structure is finely controllable and the structure is evenly dispersed.

  • Publication number: 20120238021
    Abstract: Methods for synthesizing macroscale 3D heteroatom-doped carbon nanotube materials (such as boron doped carbon nanotube materials) and compositions thereof. Macroscopic quantities of three-dimensionally networked heteroatom-doped carbon nanotube materials are directly grown using an aerosol-assisted chemical vapor deposition method. The porous heteroatom-doped carbon nanotube material is created by doping of heteroatoms (such as boron) in the nanotube lattice during growth, which influences the creation of elbow joints and branching of nanotubes leading to the three dimensional super-structure. The super-hydrophobic heteroatom-doped carbon nanotube sponge is strongly oleophilic and an soak up large quantities of organic solvents and oil. The trapped oil can be burnt off and the heteroatom-doped carbon nanotube material can be used repeatedly as an oil removal scaffold.
