Focuses on copolymers made from sequential block polymerizations of ethylene oxide, propylene oxide and 1, 2-butylene oxide. This text presents the latest applications of polyoxyalkylene block copolymers in areas such as medicine, coal and petroleum, plastics, emulsion polymerization, paper, photography, personal care and cleaner systems. It offers in-depth coverage of the subject from synthesis and analysis to toxicology and environmental impact.Spectroscopic methods (FT-IR, FT-Raman, and NMR) can indicate the presence of unsaturated materials but quantitation is ... Careful analysis of surfactant samples prior to use avoids extensive troubleshooting and detective work to determine causes of ... or low molecular weight by-products (such as 1, 4-dioxane , acetaldehyde, propionaldehyde, and allyl alcohol) may remain in the surfactant mixture.
