Resumen:
Una oficina francesa de transferencia de tecnología representa a una empresa que ofrece nuevas poliolefinas funcionalizadas para utilización en materiales de rendimiento. Estas nuevas poliolefinas especiales permiten combinar las ventajas de los polímeros convencionales (bajo coste y baja toxicidad) con el valor añadido aportado por las nuevas funcionalidades. El proceso de polimerización es catalítico y ofrece la ventaja de producir un gran número de cadenas por catalizador para una producción de coste reducido. La versatilidad de las funciones desarrolladas permite incorporar nuevas propiedades físico-químicas (no polaridad, cristalinidad o propiedades térmicas) en materiales aparentemente incompatibles. La empresa está trabajando con la oficina para mejorar el proceso y busca socios en la industria química para licenciar la tecnología.

Tittle:
A French Technology Transfer Office offers new functionalized polyolefins for utilisation in performance materials for licensing
Summary:
A French Technology Transfer Office (TTO) offers new functionalized polyolefins for utilisation in performance materials.
These new specialty polyolefins allow the combination of commodity polymer advantages (low cost, low toxicity) with the added value provided by the new functionalities.
A French SME is working with the TTO to scale-up the process. The TTO is looking for industrials interested in the technology for licensing.
Description:
*Market challenges
Thermoplastic polyolefins like polyethylene are unreactive, non-functional materials. The introduction of functional and or reactive groups on polyolefins is a challenge to produce building blocks for further polymerisation and new specialty materials , for applications in cosmetics, plastics, adhesives, coatings, chemistry, etc.

*State of the art
The actual challenges resides in the lack of reactivity of polyolefins, limiting the functionalisation potential, and on the production costs associated with classical methods. Functional polyolefins are classically obtained by post-polymerisation, requiring a longer synthetic route, or by living-polymerisation, requiring one catalyst per polymer chain and thus inducing larger production costs.

*Proposed technology
New polyethylene building blocks with end or lateral functionalities have been developed with an innovative process allowing the introduction of multiple functionalities in a one-pot reaction.
The polymerisation process is catalytic, presenting the advantage of producing a large number of chains per catalyst, for a reduced cost production. The process has been scaled-up at kilogram scale with tunable molar mass control.
These new specialty polyolefins allow the combination of commodity polymer advantages (low cost, low toxicity) with the added value provided by the new functionalities. The versatility of functions developed allows the introduction of new physico-chemical properties to materials: non-polarity, crystallinity or thermal properties can thus be introduced on apparently incompatible materials.

*Organisation
This new technology is carried by a French Trechnology Transfer Office (TTO) working with researchers from the local university.

*Desired cooperation
Partners from chemical industry are sought for license agreements. Within the agreements there are opportunities for further development and commercial use.

Advantages and Innovations:
· Tunable physico-chemical properties of materials
· Process and catalyst operated in industry
· Control of functionalization level and molar mass
Stage of Development:
Under development/lab tested
