Ring-Closing Metathesis Creates Nylon-11, -12 and -13 Precursors from Widely Abundant Plant-Derived Biomass
Project ID: D2014-39 IP Status: Provisional patent #62/020,488 filed Invention Description: Invention relates to a new ring-closing-metathesis approach for making C11, C12 and C13 lactams (cyclic form of amino acids) from oleic acid or alkyl esters originating from lipids. The method allows direct conversion of the widely abundant natural fatty aci...
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...
