sec-Butanol was employed to prepare etherified methylol–melamine resins to be used in the coatings industry as crosslinking agents. Difficulties associated with slow rate of etherification as compared to the rate of polycondensation of methylol–melamine were overcome by finding the determining factors which controlled the two competitive reactions independently. Attempts were made to interpret the effects of various factors from a mechanistic point of view.
