Abstract

This study concerns a novel direct one-pot allylation of living polyisobutylenes leading to mono-, di- and triallyl-telechelic PIBs, and subsequent functionalization of these to the corresponding epoxy and hydroxyl telechelic products. This is the first one-pot process that leads to terminal functionalities other than chlorines. It is found that novel hydroxyl-telechelic PIBs were obtained by hydroboration/oxidation of allyl-terminated polymers. Extending and/or crosslinking these products with isocyanates (MDI) resulted in novel rubbery polyurethanes.
