Phosphazenyl phosphines and their Metal-Complexes – new catalytically active superbasic Compounds

Schwesinger type phosphazene N-superbases are well known compounds which can be applied as polymerisation catalysts. In contrast to them the compounds presented herein exhibit even more basicity, so that these Phosphazenylphosphines may be much better catalysts for polymerisation reactions. Besides the basic compounds higher homologues are also available which may also serve as halogen-free flame retardants, due to their high content of nitrogen and phosphorous.

Application fields

Possible fields of application are primarily the vast field of base catalysed chemical synthesis, e.g. polymer-synthesis, and secondly (due to the high content of nitrogen and phosphorous) the usage as halogen-free flame retardants.

Advantages of the prior art

The technology offer encompasses a very simple and effective synthetic route to this new class of Metal/Semimetal-Komplexes of PR3-derivatives (R = N-phosphazenyl radical) and their higher homologues, as well as the compounds themselves and their principal use as catalysts or as flame retardants.

State of the product development

Currently the compounds are being synthesized on laboratory scale.

Market potential

Already in 2015 Frost & Sullivan estimated the global market for industrial catalysts to be about 3.5 billion US-$. Due to their possible application as catalysts or flame retardants, Phosphazenylphosphines may be attributed quite a good market potential.

Cooperation opportunities

On behalf of its shareholder Philipps-Universität Marburg TransMIT GmbH is looking for licensees or cooperation partners for further development in the US, Asia or Europe.
