Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Poly(ethylene glycols) and poly(propylene glycols) of different molecular weights were converted to the corresponding dibromides, bis-triallylammonium bromides, and bis-epoxy methallyl ethers. In addition, the bis-triallylammonium bromides were further converted to arborized polyether polyols by the hydroboration oxidation sequence. In this presentation, we will discuss their syntheses, proton, carbon-13, mass spectral, and thermal (DSC, TGA) characteristics, as well as explain how they react with cotton print cloth to improve tensile and tear strengths. These tests were performed using ASTM D-5035 and D-1424, respectively.
