The group of ZHU Jin has developed and patented proprietary technologies to produce polyethylene 2,5-furan dicarboxylic acid copolymers (PEF) and PECF, with cyclohexanedimethanol as a comonomer. PETF bio-based aromatic polyesters show high temperature and solvent stability, good impact resistance and may be ideal for baby bottles, toys and other devices of human use, but also as an alternative and supplement to polycarbonates (PC) used in aviation and automobile manufacturing.
