Innovation & Technologie Angebot

A Japanese university is offering a new technology for polymer synthesis aiming at joint development of new applications

Country of Origin: Japan
Reference Number: TOJP20180608001
Publication Date: 8 June 2018


The Japanese university is aiming to achieve joint research, technical cooperation or patent licensing agreements with EU companies so to find new applications for a polymer synthesis technology they have developed. 
The technology is currently applied in manufacturing of colour materials and they would like to develop it for chemical and resin material manufacturing fields. The main feature is its reduced costs, 1/100, compared to existing technology.


The company developed a new monomer molecule as a material of chemosynthesis which applies in polymerisation with acrylic ester. The synthetic polymer with this monomer molecule enables to control 3D dimensions structure in a stable condition.   

Their polymer synthesis technique the university developed is currently applied in manufacturing of colour materials, and through the partnership, they wish to find further possibilities of new applications in the field of chemical and resin material manufacturing.

They already have collaborated with companies on research and development worldwide. Based on their previous partnership agreements, they wish to collaborate with EU-based companies under the form of joint research cooperation agreement, technical cooperation agreement or licensing agreements. Financial agreements proposed by funding bodies will be considered where it is appropriate.

Once the partnership works well, they would like to evaluate the technology and discuss commercialisation options together with their potential partner.


Advantages and Innovations

Their polymer techniques has following features:

1) Low Cost
・By applying their new technique of polymer synthesis, it reduces cost to approximately one-hundredth (1/100) comparing to the existing technology utilizing common raw material.
・It also allows to reduce cost on synthetic monomer by utilising of organic catalyst, carbon, nitrogen, alcohol, halogenated alkali metal compounds, and so on.

2) Low environmental impact
・By utilising of low-toxicity catalyst it minimises environmental impact.

3) Easy operation
・Their polymer can be used without special manufacturing equipment.

4) Accessibility
・The polymer can be accessible to a wide-range of polymer design such as Block, Star, Comb, Hyper-branch, and Bruch type, etc.
・It also accessible to various monomers.
