Polymeric Bromides, Epoxies, and Quaternary Ammonium Ions to Interact with Cotton [abstract]. American Chemical Society National Meeting. 227(Part 1):U302. Technical Abstract: Polyethylene and polypropylene glycols are excellent starting materials that interact well with cotton. Our objective is to convert these into reactive entities that either covalently bind or entangle the fiber to raise mechanical strength. In this talk we will discuss the synthesis, structural and biological characteristics of these new polymers, and explain their curing behavior with cotton.
