Nucleophile-acrylate two stage photopolymerization confronted with a one step free radical acrylate photopolymerization
The Michael addition reaction is a versatile methodology for the efficient coupling of electron poor olefins with a multitude of nucleophiles. Such reaction has been identified to fulfill criteria of a “click” reaction: high yielding, simple to perform, can be conducted in easily removable or benign solvents... Taking into account the advantages of
UV-grafting Coloration of Poly (ethylene terephthalate) Using Bis(meth)acrylated Anthraquinone Dyes
UV-grafting of polymerizable dyes onto textiles could replace conventional adsorption-based coloration, which can save water, energy and environment. A novel bifunctional anthraquinone dyes possessing two photoactive acrylates groups were synthesized. The synthesized dyes of a low substantivity to poly (ethylene terephthalate), PET, fabric under th

Exposure Assessment for food contact materials
The presentation outlines why people involved in the Food Contact Material value chain may want to do exposure assessments, what is involved in creating an exposure assessment, and how the resulting exposure assessments can be used as part of a risk assessment to determine a basis for safety. The software used to do the exposure assessments is FACE
