Gist”:  Aqueous dispersions of “1,2”-dihydroxypolyacrylate -based polyurethanes

Why it is interesting: According to this invention aqueous dispersions can be made of “comb -structured” polyurethanes which are based on polyols having two hydroxyl groups at one end of the chain.  The “1,2”-diols are made by copolymerizing (e.g.) methylmethacrylate and n-butylmethacrylate together with thioglycerol up to a Mw of about 2000. The polyols can then be reacted with isocyanate and dimethylolpropionic acid for dispersion in water. The dispersions are said to have a small average particle size (10-100 nm) and be especially useful as binders for inkjet-ink.
