UNH recently entered into a licensing agreement with Itaconix LLC to commercialize green chemistry developed by the university's Nanostructured Polymers Research Center. The license gives Itaconix full rights to a process for creating a new generation of environmentally friendly polymers derived from renewable resources.

The business plan for this green chemistry won graduate student Ming Cao second place in this year's Paul J. Holloway Business Prize Competition at UNH.
