Thiol Chemistry: Past and Progress

Jon Scholte, Sartomer

Abstract:Thiol-ene photochemistry has long been the subject of academic interest though has yet to see widespread application. Traditionally, thiol-ene blends have been limited to low thiol concentrations due to stability issues. Here we report our accomplishments on the long term stabilization and formulation of thiol-acrylate blends to achieve novel properties to overcome limitations of (meth) acrylate photopolymerization.
