  • Publication number: 20100004390
    Abstract: The invention provides metal-chelating poly(ether amide) polymers useful in preparation of polymer compositions for delivering a variety of cargo molecules, such as bioactive agents. In solution metal ions and cargo molecules, such as vaccine epitopes, that include metal avid amino acids can be loaded into the polymer compositions and held in a non-covalent complex. Nanoparticles of such polymer compositions can also be prepared directly from the solution.

  • Patent number: 7629434
    Abstract: Disclosed is a fluorine-containing polymerizable monomer represented by the formula [1] below. (In the formula, A represents a single bond, an oxygen atom, a sulfur atom, CO, CH2, SO, SO2, C(CH3)2, NHCO, C(CF3)2, a phenyl or an alicyclic ring; a and b independently represent an integer of 0-2; and 1?a+b?4.) Such a fluorine-containing polymerizable monomer can be used as an effective polymerizable monomer exhibiting water repellency, oil repellency, low water absorbency, heat resistance, weather resistance, corrosion resistance, transparency, photosensitivity, low refractive index, low dielectric properties and the like. Consequently, the fluorine-containing polymerizable monomer can be applied to the field of advanced polymer materials.

  • Patent number: 7528219
    Abstract: The present invention is a method for efficiently incorporating a nitrogen containing methine light absorber into a polyester resin. The method includes forming a reaction mixture comprising combining a diol component, a diacid component selected from the group consisting of dicarboxylic acids, dicarboxylic acid derivatives, and mixtures thereof, an antimony containing compound, a phosphorus containing compound, a metal containing compound, and a nitrogen containing methine light absorber. The reaction mixture is polymerized in a polycondensation reaction system. In another embodiment the light absorber is added while the reaction products of one reactor are being transferred to the next reactor in the polycondensation reaction system. The present invention is also directed articles made from the polyester resin.
