General description

Dicyclopentadiene(DCPD) is a dimer of cyclopentadiene composed of two unsaturated double bonds(one in the norbornene ring and one in the cyclopentene ring). DCPT is used inpolymers by itself and with other hydrocarbons. It is also employed in pharmaceuticals,elastomers, polycarbonates, and polyester resins.

Application

Dicyclopentadiene may be used:
  • In the preparation of CF/p-DCPD ((carbon fiber/ poly-dicyclopentadiene) composites by VARTM (vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding) process.
  • In the preparation of η5-cyclopentadienyltris(dimethylamido)zirconium catalyst.
  • In the synthesis of cellulose – maleic anhydride– dicyclopentadiene copolymer matrix by free radical polymerization.

Features and Benefits

DCPD has the following advantages over orthophthalic andisophthalic polyesters:
  • Low shrinkage
  • Cost-effective
  • Reduced emissions of styrene
  • Fast curing in thin layers.

Zinc(II) oxide nanoparticles were used for the stabilization of dicyclopentadiene (DCPD)-water-based high internal phase emulsions (HIPEs), which were subsequently cured using ring-opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP). The morphology of the resulting ZnO-pDCPD nanocomposite foams was investigated in correlation to the nanoparticle

Cyclic Ru-phenolates were synthesized, and these compounds were used as olefin metathesis catalysts. Investigation of their catalytic activity pointed out that, after activation with chemical agents, these catalysts promote ring-closing metathesis (RCM), enyne and cross-metathesis (CM) reactions, including butenolysis, with
