Soybean oil oxidation to polyols

Abstract

Controlled air oxidation of soybean oil was used to create polyols. The polyols made by the oxidation of triglycerides in soybean oil could be suitable for block copolymer synthesis. The oil's well-defined chemical structure and low cost make it one of the most attractive plant-based oils for functionalization. A combination of traditional and statistical experimental approaches was used to predict suitable reaction conditions for controlled air oxidation. This made it possible for the oxidation to proceed in a relatively well-defined manner. This route is potentially the easiest and least expensive for the introduction of polar functionality into soybean oil by creating hydroxyl-containing triglycerides.
