FAQ

Q: What is Cardanol?
A: Cardanol is a phenol obtained from anacardic acid, the main component of cashew nutshell liquid (CNSL), a byproduct of cashew nut processing.
  Q: What is Cardanol used for?
A: Cardanol finds use in the chemical industry in resins, coatings, frictional materials, and surfactants used as pigment dispersants for water-based inks. It is used to make phenalkamines, which are used as curing agents for the durable epoxy coatings used on concrete floors.
  Q: Chemical properties of cardanol?
A: In terms of physical properties, cardanol is comparable to nonylphenol. Cardanol is hydrophobic and remains flexible and liquid at very low temperatures;[5] its freezing point is below -20°C, it has a density of 0.930 g/mL, and boils at 225°C under reduced pressure (10 mmHg).[6] CAS registry number: 37330-39-5.
  Q: What is Cardanol reactions?
A: Friction particles are made by polymerizing the unsaturated side chain of cardanol, followed by cross-polymerization with phenol to yield a cardanol-formaldehyde resin by a process analogous to the formation of phenol-formaldehyde resins such as Bakelite. Cardanol-phenol resins were developed in the 1920s by Mortimer T. Harvey, then a student at Columbia University. These resins found use in vehicle brakes after it was found that they had a coefficient of friction that was less sensitive to temperature changes than phenol-formaldehyde resins.
  Q: How to make Cardanol?
A: Despite all these uses, only a fraction of the cardanol obtained from cashew nut processing is used in the industrial field. Therefore, there is still interest in developing new applications, such as new polymers.
