Dainichiseika has been conducting an Academic-Industrial collaboration with Institute for Chemical Research of Kyoto University and had implemented an A-STEP (Adaptable and Seamless Technology Transfer Program through target driven R and D) program of JST (Japan Science and Technology Agency) from Nov. 2011 to Mar. 2015 with them. In that program we had aimed to make the LRP (Living Radical Polymerization) technology which had been invented by Associate Professor Atushi GOTO of Kyoto University one of our core technologies and using this technology to develop high-performance color materials which has superiority and competitiveness in the world market. In this paper, we summarize the circumstance of the program, the content of this LRP technology and our results.
