XlynX Materials releases new polymer molecular glue: BondLynx

"Hyper glue" adhesive forges new bonds at the molecular level to permanently adhere difficult-to-bond polymers. XlynX Materials (Victoria, B.C., Canada) has announced the creation of a new class of adhesives they are calling “molecular glues.” These make it possible to permanently adhere difficult-to-bond polymers such as polyethylene and polypropylene to themselves, and to other materials, through exceptionally strong chemical […]

New 'molecular glue' permanently bonds any plastic to plastic

XlynX Materials has created a new class of adhesives they are calling “molecular glues”. These make it possible to permanently adhere difficult-to-bond polymers such as polyethylene and polypropylene to themselves, and to other materials, through exceptionally strong chemical bonds. Conventional adhesives typically take advantage of mechanical forces to hold materials together. BondLynx employs bis-diazirine chemistry to create covalent chemical bonds between polymer chains, permanently crosslinking them […]

XlynX launches glue based on bisdiazirine chemistry

The Canadian start-up XlynX Materials has launched what it calls a new class of adhesives that use bisdiazirine chemistry to create covalent bonds between polymer chains. The firm says the approach can form carbon-carbon bonds between almost any plastics, including hard-to-glue polyethylene and polypropylene. XlynX’s technology was developed by University of Victoria chemistry professor Jeremy […]

Graphane: An exceptional candidate for hydrogen storage

The work we and the NRL are doing is chemically adding hydrogen to graphite (to make graphane, a solid). It can then be released (as a gas) by heating. This is classified as "solid state hydrogen storage." The hydrogen gas released from the graphane is then fed directly to a fuel cell where it reacts […]
