Chapter 5: Non-Isocyanate Polyurethane from Vegetable and Microalgal Oil

Tao Dong, Skylar Schutter, Cheng Zhang, Jacob Kruger

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, vegetable oil, heterotrophic algal oil and phototrophic algal oil were used for NIPU development. NIPU properties were evaluated, and its promising performance was demonstrated, indicating that vegetable oils and algal oils with high functionalities are promising precursors for NIPU polymers.
