Technical Abstract: Novel oligomeric prepolymers were synthesized by acid-catalyzed condensation of glycerol with iminodiacetic, azelaic, or succinic acid. The prepolymers were obtained, on average in 62% yield and were characterized by 13C NMR, 1H NMR, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, and GPC. The synthesized oligomers had an average molecular weight of 1543 Daltons (average PD = 1.34, average DOP = 5.5). Hyperbranching was evident in the oligomers produced when using azelaic acid and succinic acid as co-monomers with glycerol, whereas the reaction between iminodiacetic acid and glycerol resulted in linear products bearing cyclic urethane structures.
