Photoactive Polymers, Alternative Energy Materials, and Micro-Nano Electric Materials

February 26, 2023

Earlier this month, the New York-based chemical supplier Alfa Chemistry announced the addition of photoactive polymers, alternative energy materials, and micro-nano electric materials to its already well-established material portfolio. Over the past few years, the company has gained fame in providing a wide range of novel chemicals and materials, including: nanomaterials, MOFs, COFs, nanofibers, nanoparticles, pheromones, functional materials, ionic liquids, organic silane, low molecular weight alcohols, perovskite quantum dots, rare earth alloys, 2D materials, and more.


“We aim to support researchers engaged in exploring potential applications with various materials. Meanwhile, we also target clients who are involved with chemical and material supply chains. As we prioritize product quality and safety for the use of chemicals, all of our materials are manufactured in compliance with the ISO 9001:2015 standards. Hence, customers fully trust our brand and products, said the Marketing Chief of Alfa Chemistry.


Photoactive Polymers

Also known as photosensitizers, sensitizers, and light crosslinking agents, photoactive polymers are widely applied in solar cells, 3D printing, and photodynamic therapy (PDT) owing to their unique physicochemical properties. Alfa Chemistry is now able to provide a wide range of photoactive polymers, some of which are listed here: MEH-PPV (CAS 138184-36-8), Poly(3-butylthiophene-2,5-diyl) (CAS 98837-51-5),   F8T2 (CAS 210347-56-1), F8BT (CAS 210347-52-7), PFN-DOF (CAS 673474-75-4), Poly(2,5-di(hexyloxy)cyanoterephthalylidene) (CAS 151897-69-7), Poly(5-(2-ethylhexyloxy)-2-methoxy-cyanoterephthalylidene) (CAS 194292-84-7), Super yellow light-emitting PPV copolymer (CAS 26009-24-5), Poly(9,9-di-(2-ethylhexyl)-9H-fluorene-2,7-vinylene), and Poly(2,5-dioctyl-1,4-phenylenevinylene).


Alternative Energy Materials for Hydrogen Storage

To overcome the existing bottleneck regarding traditional hydrogen storage, novel and advanced materials have been developed, such as hydrogen storage alloys, coordination hydride hydrogen storage materials, carbon-based hydrogen storage materials, and organic liquid hydride hydrogen storage materials. As an advocator for green energy and sustainable development, Alfa Chemistry offers varieties of alternative energy materials for hydrogen storage, including: deuterated materials, alloys, boranes & borohydrides, catalysts & modifiers, covalent organic framework (COF) linkers, carbon, magnesium, metal hydrides, and MOFs & MOF raw materials.
