This matrix can be synthesized starting from cyclooctene, that can be obtained from the 1,3-butadiene and 1,5-cyclooctadiene through a metathesis reaction.
The specialty chemicals company is a leader in the production of industrially available cyclic C8 monomers and offers the four most important synthetic chemicals in this field 1,5-cyclooctadiene (COD), cyclooctene (COE), cyclooctane (COAN), and 4-vinylcyclohex-1-ene (VCH).
1,5-cyclooctadiene, for example, is used as a base material for producing effective flame retardants for plastics.
