Method of preparing polyurethane

A method of preparing polyurethane prepolymer does not require using a toxic isocyanate monomer (manufactured by harmful phosgene) as a raw material. Epoxy resin and carbon dioxide are used as major raw materials to form cyclic carbonates to be reacted with a functional group oligomer, and then amino groups in a hydrophilic (ether group) or...

Modification of polyurethane foam carriers and application in a moving bed biofilm reactor

In this study hydrophilic cationic modified polyurethane foam (MPUF) carriers were developed to achieve faster water immersion and increased affinity for biofilm attachment in a moving bed biofilm reactor compared with generally used polyurethane foam (PUF) carriers. Biofilm was more susceptible to attachment to MPUF carrier than to PUF carrier. At...
