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
PCF has great potential as a bio-based polyester engineering plastic.
