Abstract: The polymerization of propylene oxide (PO) catalysed by maghnite-H + (mag-H + ) in the presence of ethylene glycol was investigated. Mag-H + is a montmorillonite silicate sheet clay was prepared through a straight forward proton exchange process. It was found that the cationic polymerization of PO was initiated by mag-H + at 20 °C both in bulk and in solution. The effect of the amount of mag-H + and solvent was studied. These results indicated the cationic nature of the polymerization… CONTINUE READING
