The reaction of butyl isocyanate with phenylglycidyl ether was selected as a model reaction for the synthesis of aliphatic isocyanate-based poly(2-oxazolidones). The selectivity of different metal halides and aluminum trichloride/triphenylphosphine oxide (AlCl3 TPPO) and aluminum hexamethylphosphoramide (AlCl3 HMPA) complexes were investigated for oxazolidone formation. Both FTIR and mass spectrographic methods were employed for characterization of the reaction products. The kinetics of the… CONTINUE READING
