Gist”: A dihydroxythiol is reacted with an acrylate and then with diisocyanate and hydroxyacrylate

Why it is interesting: This invention relates to radically polymerizable urethane oligomers which are useful as adhesives or coatings. The oligomers are prepared in two stages:  first a dihydroxy thiol is reacted with an acrylate resulting in a diol which is then reacted with an excess diisocyanate and then with hydroxyacrylates.  For example: thioglycerol is reacted with phenyltioethylacrylate.  The resulting diol is then further reacted with TDI and subsequently with polycaprolactonacrylate and hydroxyethylacrylate resulting in the structure below. The urethane oligomers can be used for coatings or adhesives which are said to have improved properties over the existing art, like improved thermal resistance.
