Renewable Alternatives to Petroleum-Derived Products: Novel Approach Creates Nylon-12 and -13 Precursors from Lipids
Project ID: D2014-06 Invention Description: Invention relates to a new olefin cross-metathesis approach for making C12 and C13 amino esters from oleic acid (or alkyl esters) originating from lipids. The method allows direct conversion of the widely abundant natural fatty acid oleic acid into synthetic precursors or nylon-12 and nylon-13 in half the...
