high quality extraction and depolymerization of natural rubber
Extraction and Depolymerization of Natural Rubber from Common
Natural rubber was extracted from milkweed through a series of liquid solid extractions. Depolymerization of isoprene from natural rubber was attempted by thermal, peroxide catalyzed, and transition metal catalyzed methods. Characterization of the recovered isoprene was accomplished by 1H NMR and GC analysis. Introduction. Natural rubber (NR
Depolymerization of tire and natural rubber using
The natural rubber used had a starting molecular weight around 1.4 x 106; the corresponding value for tire rubber could not be obtained due to its high level of crosslinking. As shown by the results of Fig. 3, natural rubber yielded a lower molecular weight material than tire rubber for treatment with COz or with water. 3.1.3.
(PDF) Extraction of Natural Rubber from Alternative Sources
The rubber that accumulates in the roots of this dandelion is not inferior in quality to the natural rubber from H. brasiliensis , and its content reaches 27% of the dry weight of roots.
Natural rubber, also called by other names of India rubber, latex, Amazonian rubber, caucho or caoutchouc, as initially produced, consists of polymers of the organic compound isoprene, with minor impurities of other organic compounds, plus water. Thailand and Indonesia are two of the leading rubber producers.
Extraction and Characterization of Latex and Natural Rubber
Consecutive extraction of latex and natural rubber from the roots of rubber-bearing plants such as Taraxacum kok-saghyz (TKS), Scorzonera tau-saghyz (STS), and Scorzonera Uzbekistanica (SU) were carried out. Latex extraction was carried via two methods: Blender method and Flow method. The results of latex extraction were compared. Cultivated rubber-bearing plants contained slightly higher

Silica-Reinforced Natural Rubber with Epoxidized Low
The ELMWNRs with mol% epoxide groups varying from 0-50 and molecular weight in a range of 50,000-60,000 g/mol were prepared from depolymerization of epoxidized natural rubber using periodic acid in latex state. They were then added in the silica-filled NR compounds as a compatibilizer at varying loading from 0-15 phr.
David Spence (rubber chemistry)
The high quality rubber exhibited desired properties, such as a high tensile strength (greater than 2800 psi) and a two-hour vulcanization time. Vulcanization is the process by which natural rubber is strengthened by cross-linking the different polymer chains, with either elemental sulfur bridges or other molecules known as accelerators.
Guayule Rubber Gets Ready To Hit The Road
Natural rubber from Hevea b. only grows in tropical climates, Brazil and SE Asia in particular. hybridizing, and improving the mechanical and chemical extraction of a high quality rubber from
Establishment of new crops for the production of natural rubber
that produce natural rubber in their latex, although only two species in addition to the Para rubber tree are known to produce large amounts of rubber with high molecular weight  (an essential determinant of rubber quality): a shrub named guayule (Parthenium argentatum Gray) and Review TRENDS in Biotechnology Vol.25 No.11
Identification of Natural Rubber and Characterization
Natural rubber was extracted from the fig tree ( Ficus carica ) cultivated in Korea as part of a survey of rubber producing plants. Fourier transform infrared and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance analysis of samples prepared by successive extraction with acetone and benzene confirmed that the benzene-soluble residues are natural rubber, cis-1,4-polyisoprene.
