• Chemical modifications to produce soy-based polyols 

    Lozada-Rodriguez, Zuleica, 1981- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    This project comprises several chemical routes to produce soy-based polyols for future use in polyurethane foam applications. Soybean oil was polymerized by heat and catalyst to increase molecular weight, and viscosity for ...
  • Synthesis and testing of soy-based polyols: phosphate and glycerolysis oligomers 

    Lubguban, Arnold A. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    Soy-based polyols are important industrial prepolymeric materials that use renewable resource. They react with isocyanates to produce polyurethanes (PU) and can be produced at costs less than polyols derived from petrochemicals. ...
