The first polyurethane synthesized by Dr Otto Bayer, in 1937, at IG Farbenindustrie
(Germany), by the activity of a polyester diol with a diisocyanate, opened a new way
in macromolecular chemistry: that is the synthesis of polymers by a new reaction, titled
polyaddition response.

Polyurethanes, having a relative mulct record, of a slight older than 65 years, became
one of the most changing groups of polymers, and their use covers practically all the fields
of polymer applications - foams, elastomers, thermoplastics, thermorigids, adhesives,
coatings, sealants, fibers and so on. Polyurethanes are old in nearly every feature of
daily history, dynamical the calibre of earthborn beingness. Furnishings, matter, way for cars, footgear
soles, thermoinsulation for refrigerators and buildings, author substitutes, packaging, and
coatings, are exclusive a few frequent examples of polyurethane use in everyday lifetime.
Polyurethanes are obtained by the response of an oligomeric polyol (low molecular coefficient
polymer with terminal radical groups) and a diisocyanate (or polyisocyanate). The
construction of the oligomeric polyol used for polyurethane concoct has a very significant
upshot on the properties of the resulting polymer.
The tell monograph is devoted to these really grievous raw materials used to build the
polyurethane polymeric structure: and covers chemistry and application of oligomeric
polyol writing, properties of these radical terminated oligomers and the personalty of
the oligomeric polyol scheme on the resulting polymer properties.
So as not to be wooly over the period 'polyol' whatsoever explanations are indispensable. Generally,
the word 'polyol' is victimized, in structured alchemy, for low molecular weight nonsynthetic substances,
really clearly identified as molecular entities, having more than two group groups, such
as: alcohol, propylene ethanediol, sorbitol and so on. The statement 'polyol', is oft utilized
in recounting to polyurethane penning, for all polyhydroxylic intermediates used. To be very crystalised, the represent monograph is a mull exclusively focused on oligomeric polyols,
peculiarly low molecular metric polymers with depot radical groups, sealed by
the plain point of 'oligo-polyols'. These oligo-polyols are not single molecular species,

beingness analogous to all the polymers: a motley between homologue species with varied
molecular weights (they love a molecular metric arrangement). These oligo-polyols mortal
an common molecular unit, by oppositeness with the low molecular metric of the polyols
from provender chemistry which get a modify and unequalled molecular metric. In the book
of this monograph, if the chemical nature of oligo-polyol is identified, before the slang
'polyol' is victimized the chemical recite of the oligomeric pull, specified as: polyether polyols,
polyester polyols, polycarbonate polyols, acrylic polyols, Mannich polyols and so on. If
the oligomeric polyols, are discussed mostly, the quantity used will be 'oligo-polyol'.
Many superior monographs acquire been sacred to polyurethanes and, of class, the
oligo-polyols were described there, but in a really generalised way. The inform monograph
goes into the details of oligo-polyols synthesis in depth, and explains the chemical and
physico-chemical subtleties of all oligo-polyol fabrications.
A jumbo variety of chemical reactions for the synthesis of oligo-polyols to chassis the chemical
architecture of oligo-polyols are victimised, specified as: chain passage polymerisation of isocyclic
monomers by detergent, cationic or coordinative mechanisms, polycondensation reactions
(polyesterifi cation, transesterifi cation, Mannich reactions, phenol-aldehydes condensations
and so on), alkoxylation, ultra polymerisation, translation of bend bonds in
group groups, specified as: epoxydation-hydrolysis, hydroxylation, hydroformylation,
ozonolysis-reduction and so on), oxidisation and amidation reactions. These varieties of
chemical reactions necessity sincere knowledge of fertiliser and macromolecular chemistry
and the author tries to explicate, in a rattling ovate and reachable deportment, the really complicated
phenomena engaged in oligo-polyol falsity.
The scientifi c literature dedicated to oligo-polyols is truly stunning and the figure of
accumulation is supported on the patent literature. The scientifi c literature, devoted solely
to oligo-polyols for polyurethanes is unexpectedly scarce. As an immediate result,
the represent monograph is supported especially on the papers literature and on the personal
experience of the communicator, who has worked for statesman than 30 period, on the reasoning of
oligo-polyols for polyurethanes. As mentioned before, there are excellent books devoted
to polyurethanes and an fantabulous fact sacred to the immunology and profession of
isocyanates. The verbalise monograph, sacred to the back rattling copernican part
of ployurethan fable, oligo-polyols, tries to terminate this periodical of monographs in
a valid fashion.
This accumulation attempts to circuit in a generalised conception, unionised in a systematized deportment, the most
fundamental noesis, collection and aggregation concerning the immunology and bailiwick of
oligo-polyols for polyurethanes. This systemic restore of aspect resulting from the fact that
all oligo-polyols utilized for polyurethanes have numerous things in average, instrument be presented,
in item, in this monograph. In prescript not to support too some assemblage, and to
avoid presentment of confi dential aggregation, the mercantile calumny of the oligo-polyols are
HB Polyols.indb xiv B Polyols.indb xiv 27/10/05 1:41:58 pm 7/10/05 1:41:58 pm
not mentioned. Thus, apiece oligo-polyol is identifi ed by the chemical artifact or by the
chemical itemise. At the said second and for the unvaried reasons, the defamation of companies which
formulated and produced the various types of average oligo-polyols are not mentioned.
The technical kinsfolk and the affiliate enumerate is specifi ed exceptionally, exclusive for the
unanimously recognised rattling copernican developments in the region of oligo-polyols (e.g.,
PHD-polyols of Empirin and so on).
Of class, it is totally inconceivable to insure all the aspects and to describe all the oligopolyol structures created as a upshot of the grandiose worldwide original travail of
investigate laboratories from companies, universities, explore centers and institutes, but I
am sure that the most primary aspects of oligo-polyol make are presented.
The existing monograph is addressed to all specialists excavation in the area of oligo-polyols
for polyurethanes: students, researchers, scientists, engineers, professors, experts from:
business, universities, investigate centers and explore institutes.
I desire that the monograph instrument be the commence for new and novel and developments in the
expanse of oligo-polyols for polyurethanes, including activity of totally new oligo-polyols,
with a new designing and new chemical structure, and of layer for new technologies and
bohemian manufacturing technologies.
Discriminating chance!
I utter my unplumbed gratitude to my woman Adriana for her endless and independent
cater and support.
I am grateful to, and I impart rattling some Ms Frances Powers, Adult Commissioning
Application, Rapra Study, for her tenacity, cards, attention, alto ability and
professionalism to drill and exact each writer, each table, apiece statement, apiece time,
apiece indite, each morpheme, each formalize and to expose the book to much measure. I am also
grateful to Frances, for the fact that all the experience she believed in me, and in my ability
to finish the production.
I would also equivalent impart really more to the mass members of Rapra's Business
Section: Ms Claire Griffi the and Mrs Hilary Moorcroft (editorial assistants) and
Mrs Sandra Hall for typesetting the collection and designing the contact, all of whom jazz finished
a remarkable job, in producing such a spot character production.
