Using CO2 as sustainable feedstock for polyurethane production

Monday, 7 April 2014

Eight German researchers synthesised tailor-made polyethercarbonate polyols from propylene oxide and CO2.

Molecular weight and functionality of these polyethercarbonate polyols are controlled by the use of an appropriate alcohol starter enabling innovative applications as a polymer building block. Interestingly, the properties of the polyethercarbonate polyols can be adjusted in a wide range by tuning CO2 content and architecture.

Prime example has industrial potential

The feasibility of using such tailored polyethercarbonate polyols in the production of polyurethanes is demonstrated as a prime example for a novel CO2utilization with industrial potential.

The study is published in: Green Chemistry, Issue 4, 2014.
