The purpose of this work is to explore the effect of novel poly(caprolactone) diols with pendant polymer chains on the bulk and surface properties of polyurethane (PU) coatings.
A mixture of LTX-diol and isoleukotoxin diol (iso-LTX-diol) was used because the chemical synthesis protocol routinely generates nearly equimolar mixtures of both isomers (LTX-diol + iso-LTX-diol) that have indistinguishable biological activities in our experimental systems in vitro (Markaverich et al.
2], (P-P = bulky chelating diphosphine ligand) of this type being employed in polyol transformations have been reported in the academic [3] as well as the patent literature [4,5] in the past few years, but to date their successes have been limited to the hydrogenation of terminal diol model systems, while their effectiveness with glycerol and higher polyols has so far been marginal.
