BIOPU

Fecha de inicio: 01 Aug 2023 Fecha de finalización prevista: 31 May 2024
The project is created with the aim of exploring different routes to improve the kinetics and degree of progress of polyaddition reactions. It will enable research work to be carried out to determine the influence of the different experimental variables involved in these reactions and to establish the optimum conditions for polymerisation between the carbonated oils obtained and different polyamides. In addition, during the development of the BIOPU project, work will continue on improving the previous processes for obtaining precursors with epoxy and cyclic carbonate groups. In this line, possible ways of improving these processes will be analysed and the effect of specific factors such as the influence of the previous hydrolysis of the starting oils will be established.

Expected results:

1

Knowledge of the influence of various experimental variables involved in the processes of epoxidation and carbonation of unsaturated compounds of renewable origin, mainly vegetable oils, and definition of specific experimental conditions to improve the efficiency of these processes.


2

Development of epoxidised precursors with cyclic carbonate groups of renewable origin for potential use as feedstock in isocyanate-free polyurethane synthesis processes.


3

Knowledge of the effect of different experimental variables involved in the polymerisation process between cyclic carbonates and amines and the establishment of specific conditions that allow the polymerisation process between cyclic carbonates and amines and the establishment of specific conditions that allow a significant improvement in the to introduce a significant improvement in the efficiency of the NIPU synthesis process.

 


4

Development of isocyanate-free polyurethanes (NIPUs) with a high renewable content, above 50%, and with potential application in products for the potential application in products for the habitat sector, either as adhesives or coatings for wood or cellular materials.
wood or cellular materials.

 


5

Knowledge of the integration and modification capacity of renewable compounds to obtain additives and/or bio-based fillers for addition to polyurethane systems. additives and/or bio-based fillers for addition to polyurethane systems.

 


6

Development of additives and/or fillers of renewable origin that reduce the carbon footprint of polyurethane systems obtained by substituting additives of synthetic origin. polyurethane systems obtained by substituting additives of synthetic origin.
