Abstract

Studies on obtaining and hydroxypropyl properties of oxamide (OD) derivatives with contribution of OD and N,N′-bis(2-hydroxypropyl)oxamide (BHPOD) were carried out. As a hydroxyalkylating agent, the propylene carbonate (PC) was used. Hydroxypropylating with OD proceeds with a partial preservation of carbonate groups in the structure of products, and during the reaction, a partial dimerization of hydroxypropoxylene derivatives of OD occurs. The obtained hydroxypropoxy derivatives of OD are distinguished by an increased thermal stability. Hydroxypropoxy derivatives of OD are expected to find application as polyol components for the manufacture of thermally stable foamed polyurethane plastics. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
