A Novel Approach to Prepare Fluorinated Polyether Glycol Using Phase-Transfer Catalysts
The goal of this work has been the synthesis of novel fluorine-containing glycidyl ether based on 3, 3, 2, 2-tetrafluoropropanol (TFP) and epichlorohydrin (ECH) as the starting materials under condition of TBAB (Tetrabutylammonium bromide) catalyst. Furthermore, a novel fluorinated polyether glycol was successfully produced by the above synthesized fluorine-containing glycidyl ether. The structure of the products was characterized by 1H-NMR and IR spectrum. The number average molecular weight was measured by GPC.
