Ethoxylation and Propoxylation

The ethoxylation reaction - adding ethylene oxide (EO) to the compounds containing dissociated protons can generate a
variety of ethoxylates for many applications. The formed ethoxylates have the following general structure:

Where, R can be but not limited to the following compounds:
Fatty Alcohol
Fatty Acid
Fatty Amine
Alkyl Phenol.
The properties of the ethoxylates may be tuned significantly by changing n - the addition number of ethylene oxide.  
Furthermore, if the compound, R, has multiple end groups of hydroxyl, carboxyl, or amine, the final ethoxylate can appear as
a multiple PEG arm structure.

We are well prepared to perform ethoxylation services with your designated initial compounds. On the other hand,
propoxylation - a similar reaction process of using propylene oxide (PO) can also be done in our lab, which will make
different propoxylates, even copolymers of PO/EO when PO and EO are used simultaneously.
