Polyphenols and high-performance resins from syringaldehyde

  • US Patent No. 9187591
  • Issued: November 17, 2015
  • Status: Active

A method to generate renewable high performance composites and thermoplastics. These materials can be generated from a renewable phenol (syringaldehyde) that can be derived from lignocellulosic biomass. The use of syringaldehyde as a precursor to composites has the potential to reduce the cost and environmental impact of structural materials, while meeting or exceeding the performance of current petroleum derived resins.
