13) Itaconic acid as an alternative for synthesis of rubbers.
Abstract This study investigates the influence of carboxylic monomers, such as itaconic acid (IA), on the colloidal properties of the latexes made by semi-continuous emulsion copolymerization of styrene (STy) with n-butyl acrylate (BA).
A brief sampling of topics to give some idea of scope and technical level: particle-size effects on the volatilization of oil in porous media, scale and corrosion inhibition of synthesized polymers from waste itaconic acid, data mining and heuristic algorithms for electronic commerce, seed levitation based on magneto-Archimedes effect, sweet spot and the influence of corking and materials on baseball bat, the development of an environmental risk emergency management decision support information system, and an improved ant-colony algorithm based on cloud model theory.

and the University of Maine, to produce Itaconix's green polymers from itaconic acid fermented with sugars extracted from hardwood biomass.
The olefinically unsaturated monomer corresponds to one or more monomers selected from at least one olefinically unsaturated monomer selected from the group consisting of: a) mono- and di-esters of crotonic acid, cinnamic acid, fumaric acid, maleic acid, citraconic acid, and itaconic acid; b) carboxyfunctional monomers; c) N-vinyl caprolactam, vinyl phosphonates, N-vinyl formamides, N-vinyl acetamides, hydroxypropyl acrylates and methacrylates, monoacrylates and monomethacrylates of polyalkylene glycols, acrylates, methacrylates, acrylic acid and methacrylic acid amides containing amine groups; d) vinyl esters corresponding to general formula (I) CH2xCH--O--C(O)--R1, with R1=C11-21.
They synthesized a copolymer of acrylic and itaconic acid, which proved indefinitely stable in a 50% aqueous solution.

Itaconix - Positive - Bio-based Materials and Chemicals With a low-capex, low-opex process expanding to 5,000 MT/year to produce itaconic acid polymers for chemical intermediates, binders, and super-absorbents, Itaconix is one of the few bio-based chemical companies we expect to run in the black in 2013.
Bioplastics were produced by the copolymerization of 1,3-propanediol (PDO) with malonic acid (MA) and with itaconic acid (IA).
