Rohm and Haas (R&H) Company recently received a $2 million Advanced Technology Program award from the National Institute Standards (NIT) for the development of new technologies that can be used to create a unique family of high-performance acrylic polymers and copolymers.
R&H will begin a three-year effort, Project Columbus, to develop a new platform for catalytic polymerizations. If successful, this research will complete a missing link that can enable production of special acrylic polymers offering novel performance benefits, R&H executives said. In partnership with the NIST Advanced Technology program, R&H scientists will join researchers from the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena to design and synthesize new catalysts.
“We expect the new catalysts to deliver unprecedented performance. For the first time, we’ll be able to control the molecular architecture of acrylic polymers and combine the best features of acrylics with those of polyolefins,” said Dr. Brian Goodall, R&H chief scientist for catalysts.
