2013  Research on technologies in the whole industry chain of isophorone

Isophorone diamine (IPDA) is a kind of aliphatic diamine with excellent performance, whose widest application is to produce isophorone diisocyanate (IPDI) through a reaction with phosgene.

In addition, it can also be used as the raw material in the synthesis of polyamide and as an epoxy curing agent with excellent performance. Research on technologies in the whole industry chain of isophorone mainly include the research and development of three key technologies: isophorone (IP), isophorone nitrile (IPN) and isophorone diamine (IPDA).Development of each technology is a global challenge. In 2007, Wanhua officially launched research on technologies in the whole industry chain of isophorone. After seven years of technical study, three sets of pilot-plant technological process (IP, IPN, IPDA) designed and developed by our researchers were completed at the end of 2013 and produced qualified IP, IPN, IPDA products, which marked that Wanhua had fully mastered the core technologies in the whole industry chain of isophorone.
