Abstract

Method for reducing the concentration of nitrogen oxides in waste gases released during the production of organic amino compounds, wherein an organic compound is first reacted with NOx and/or nitric acid to form an organic nitro compound with the formation of an NOx-containing waste gas stream and the organic nitro compound is converted to the organic amino compound by means of a hydrogen-containing reaction gas, the reaction of the organic nitro compound with the hydrogen-containing reduction gas taking place with the formation of a hydrogen-containing waste gas stream, the method being characterised in that the NOx-containing waste gas stream (1) is combined with the hydrogen-containing waste gas stream and/or an externally supplied hydrogen stream (3) and is reacted at a temperature of 800 to 1700°C for the at least partial reduction of the NOxconcentration. An apparatus for carrying out the method is also described.

Abstract

Low molecular weight polyoxyalkylene polyether polyols having a hydroxy! content of from about 3.4 to about 12.1 % by weight, and OH numbers of from about 112 to about 400 are produced by a continuous process using a DMC catalyst. In the process of the present invention, oxyalky!ation conditions are established in a continuous reactor in the presence of a DMC catalyst; alkylene oxide and a low molecular weight starter are continuously introduced into the continuous reactor; a partially oxyalkylated polyether polyol is recovered from the reactor; and the recovered partially oxyalkylated polyether polyol is allowed to further reactor until the un reacted alkylene oxide content of the mixture is reduced to 0.001 % or less by weight. The alkoxylation of the present invention must be carried out a pressure sufficiently high to prevent deactivation of the DMC catalyst. Pressures of from 45 to 55 psia are preferred.

Abstract

This invention relates to a semi-batch process for the production of polyoxyalkylene polyether polyols. These polyoxyalkylene polyether polyols have hydroxy I (OH) numbers of from 112 to 400. This process comprises establishing oxyalkylation condition in a reactor in the presence of a DMC catalyst, continuously introducing alkylene oxide and a suitable starter into the reactor, and recovering an oxyalkyated polyether polyol. The oxyalkylation initially occurs at a temperature that is sufficiently high enough to avoid or prevent deactivation of the DMC catalyst, or for from 2% to 50% of the total oxide feed amount, and the oxyalkylation is then continued at a lower temperature.

Abstract

The invention relates to a method for producing compositions containing vinyl-aromatic copolymers which are obtained in an emulsion polymerization process and comprise production-related salt inclusions. Said compositions are characterized by an improved surface quality once the extruded polymer, before being granulated, or the granulate, after being granulated, has been moistened by bringing the polymer in contact with liquid water in a water bath, a tube system filled with water, or a dipping tank, thus making the compositions suitable for producing molded articles having a class A surface that remains flawless over time.

The method comprises a first step, in which at least A) an organic diisocyanate and B) a polyol having a number-average molecular weight Mn ≥ 500 and ≤ 5000 g/mol are reacted to form an isocyanate-terminated prepolymer. In a second step, the prepolymer is reacted with C) one or more chain extenders having a molecular weight ≥ 60 and ≤ 490 g/mol and optionally D) a monofunctional chain stopper or E) an organic diisocyanate, wherein optionally at least F) one catalyst is used in the first and/or second step. The molar ratio of the sum of the isocyanate groups from A) and, if applicable, E) to the sum of the groups reactive to isocyanate in B), C), and, if applicable, D) is ≥ 0.9:1 and ≤ 1.2:1, and component B) contains at least one polyether carbonate polyol, which can be obtained by adding carbon dioxide and alkylene oxides to H-functional starter substances. The invention further relates to a thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer produced in accordance with the method according to the invention, the use of said thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer to produce extruded or injection molded items, and the items produced by extrusion or injection molding.
