Description

Packaging

5, 25 mL in glass bottle

Application

Hexyl isocyanate may be employed for the synthesis of following:
• rigid-rod, helical isocyanate-based macromonomers
• rod-coil-rod triblock copolymers with 2-vinylpyridine, by living anionic polymerization
• chiral poly(n-hexyl isocyanate) (PHIC) macromonomers, by living anionic polymerization

General description

Hexyl isocyanate has been investigated for its antigenicity in the guinea pig animal model of hapten-specific respiratory hypersensitivity. Polymerization of n-hexyl isocyanate using rare earth tris(2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-methylphenolate) [Ln(OAr)3] as initiator has been studied.
