Abstract

s modulus, and thermal stability because of the higher degree of cross-linking in the new polyols. Moreover, the novel polyols, prepared using the solvent-free and catalyst-free synthetic route, were 100% bio-based and facilitate a more environmentally friendly and economical process than conventional soy-based polyols used for polyurethane production.
