Chinese Create PCF from FDCA and May Disrupt PET and PEF

By Axel Barrett

The bio-based polyester demonstrated great potential and could be used as engineering plastic.

PCF (poly(1,4-cyclohexanedimethylene furandicarboxylate) was synthesized from FDCA and CHDM with different steric conformation.

The melting temperature of PCF could be up to 294 °C and its crystallization half-time could be only several seconds.

The mechanical properties and thermal stability of PCF were comparable to or better than those of PET or PBT.Chinese PCF polyester engineering plastic
