GS Pla® has been developed and sold taking advantage of the biodegradable feature, and practical use is progressing to materials for agriculture, such as a biodegradable mulching film, as well as the material of disposable food utensils, etc. The tableware using GS Pla® was used in the athletes' dormitories at the Vancouver Winter Olympics held in Canada in 2010. Furthermore, Thailand's Ko Samet resort island in July 2010 started to use GS Pla® garbage bags as part of a garbage composting program. Now, a program is underway to convert one of the raw materials for GS Pla®, succinic acid, from petroleum origination to biomass origination.
DURABIO® is a biopolycarbonate resin derived mainly from plant-based isosorbide. Compared with conventional polycarbonate resin (hereafter abbreviated PC resin) made from bisphenol A (hereafter abbreviated BPA), DURABIO® features high transparency, excellent optical properties, and outstanding scratch resistance. Its puncture impact behaviour are comparable to those for PC resin. DURABIO® is a plant-derived polymer but is not biodegradable. It has excellent durability, making possible its deployment in a wide variety of applications such as for optical ・energy related components, a substitute for high-performance glass components, as well as for electronic equipment ・ automotive housings ・ interior and exterior decor.
VELVE™ is Mitsubishi Chemical's much-anticipated, next-generation, surface-emission lighting product --- also known as an OLED modular lighting panel. The best white light is provided with a carefully woven combination of color mixing --- from optimum RGB phosphor structure --- and a dimming function. VELVE™ extends the possibilities of spatial design and product design. ※VELVE™ is a registered trademark of Mitsubishi Chemical.

Gallium Nitride is one kind of wide-gap compound semiconductors. CAS No.25617-97-4, EINECS Number 247-129-0 Mitsubishi Chemical's Gallium Nitride (GaN) substrate is a high-quality single-crystal substrate. It is made with original HVPE method and wafer processing technology, which has been originally developed for many years. The features are high crystalline, good uniformity, and superior surface quality. GaN substrates are used for many kinds of applications, for white LED and LD(violet, blue and green) Furthermore, development has progressed for power and high frequency electronic device applications. In order to achieve higher quality and productivity, we have been developing the Liquid Phase growth process called SCAAT(SuperCritical Acidic Ammonia Technology) method.
The strongly acidic cation exchange resins are bead-like products which have a sulfonic acid group in the cross-linked styrene frame. They can be used across the full pH range (0-14), and are relatively stable to temperature, even withstanding high temperatures of 100-120℃. They are used in a wide variety of fields including water purification, water softening, wastewater treatment, purification of pharmaceuticals and food, and catalysis.
DIAION™ Series(Strongly Acidic Cation Exchange Resins)
The weakly acidic cation exchange resins have the carboxylic acid group (-COOH) as the exchange group. There are two kinds --- a methacrylic acid type and an acrylic acid type. The acrylic acid weakly acidic cation exchange resin is used for processing water with high carbonate hardness. The methacrylic acid type is used for purification of antibiotics and amino acids.
Methacrylic acid-based weakly acidic cation exchange resin
Acrylic acid-based weakly acidic cation exchange resin
An amino functional group is incorporated into the anion exchange resin enabling the exchange of anions like the Cl- ion and the SO4-- ion. Strongly basic anion exchange resins and weakly basic anion exchange resins can be defined according to the basic strength of the amino functional group. The ion exchange resin that has a quaternary ammonium group is strongly alkaline and dissociates just like NaOH and KOH. Therefore it is called a strongly basic anion exchange resin.
Type I Structure: Strongly basic anion exchange resin
Type 2 Structure: Strongly basic anion exchange resin
The weakly basic anion exchange resins use either a polystyrene or polyacrylic ester frame and a primary-ternary amino group as the functional group. Although the anion of a salt like NaCl or Na2SO4 cannot be exchanged, the exchange of an anion of a mineral acid such as HCl and H2SO4, or the salt of a weak base like NH44Cl can be carried out.
Styrene-based Polyamine Type
The low-odor, low-leachable anion exchange resin reduces the release of total organic carbon (TOC) and amines to prevent offensive odors.
DIAION™ AMP03 is an amphoteric ion exchange resin in which a quatenary ammonium group and a carboxy group are incorporated on a cross-linked polystyrene frame. Because the beads are 260µm and uniform size, elution peaks are sharp for separations of electrolyte and non-electrolyte or separations among electrolytes (sodium chloride, sodium sulfate, etc.)
DIAION™ Series (Novel Amphoteric Ion Exchange Resins)
A chelating resin has a functional group that is capable of forming a chelate (complex) with a metal ion. The specific metals that can form chelates with the functional group can be captured. In the DIAION™ CR Series, there are three product types: (1) for common metals -- DIAION™ CR11 with the iminodiacetic acid functional group, (2) for metals other than alkali metals (Na, K, etc.) or alkaline earth metals (Ca, Mg, etc.) -- DIAION™ CR20 with the polyamine group, and (3) for selectively capturing boric acid --- CRB03 and CRB05 with the methylglucamide group.
The Synthetic Adsorbents are cross-linked polymer spheres which provide specific surface area of 500-1200m2/dry-g with their porous structure. Available products include the aromatic-based HP series, the aromatic-based SP series, and the methacrylate ester-based HP2MG. They are used for the adsorption purification of peptides, proteins, polyphenols, cephalosporin C, etc. as well as for the removal of bitter-tasting substances from fruit juices.
