Bicyclooctane derivatives as plasticisers

J.C. Jansen (Inventor), H. Luitjes (Inventor)

    Research output: Patent


    The use of isosorbide esters, isosorbide polyesters, isosorbide ethers, isosorbide carbonates, isosorbide thioethers, isosorbide thioesters, isosorbide amides, isosorbide (thio)urethanes, isosorbide urea, isosorbide phosphates and isosorbide phosphonates as a plasticizer is described. Instead of isosorbide it is also possible for corresponding diols such as isomannide and similar compounds, in which the ring oxygen atoms of the isosorbide have been replaced by carbon or by other heteroatoms, to serve as a base. In particular, this relates to C3-C11 alkanoates of isosorbide, isomannide and the like. In particular, the compounds are used as a plasticizer inpoly(vinylchloride), optionally in conjunction with usual plasticizers such as dioctyl phthalates.
