Two-step Conversion of Crude Glycerol Generated by Biodiesel Production into Biopolyols: Synthesis, Structural and Physical Chemical Characterization
In this work biopolyols were synthesized via two-step process from crude glycerol and castor oil. For better evaluation of analyzed process, the impact of its time and temperature on the structure and properties of biopolyols was determined. Obtained results fully justified conducting of synthesis in two steps. Prepared materials were characterized by hydroxyl value and water content comparable to polyols industrially applied in manufacturing of polyurethane materials. Synthesized biopolyols were characterized in terms of their chemical structure using spectroscopic techniques: Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Obtained data confirmed the influence of synthesis’ parameters on the chemical structure of prepared biopolyols and correlated with their other parameters. On both stages of reaction, collected by-products were also analyzed with FTIR spectroscopy.
