Synthesis of peroxy oligomers using 1,2-epoxy-3-tert-butyl peroxypropane

Michael Bratychak, Mikhailo Bratychak, Olena Astakhova and Olena Shyshchak

The possibility of peroxy oligomer synthesis has been studied by three methods: telomerization of diepoxy derivatives of ethylene glycol or Bisphenol A using 1,2-epoxy-3-tert-butyl peroxypropane as telogen, modification of phenol-formaldehyde resins by 1,2-epoxy-3-tert-butyl peroxypropane and polycondensation of phenol containing –O–O– bonds with formaldehyde. The peroxy oligomers obtaining conditions have been established and 7 new oligomers with peroxy groups have been synthesized. The structures of synthesized oligomers have been verified by chemical and spectral methods.
