Some thiol-terminated polyethers


  • Journal Series No. 462.


Thiol-terminated polyethers were prepared by two different routes, the starting materials being commercially available polyether polyols and epoxy resins. The products were pale colored liquids and were found to be very stable on storage at room temperature. Thiol-terminated polyethers of functionality from 2 to 4 were prepared. They are interesting building blocks for polymers through oxidation of the terminal SH groups or through coreaction with epoxy resins.
