New Syntheses of Methoxypoly(oxyethylene) Vinyl Ether and its Oligo Analog
A new method to synthesize vinyl ethers of methoxyoligooxyethylene, I, and methoxypoly(oxyethylene), II, is described. In this work, these derivatives were prepared by reacting the alkoxide of ethylene glycol vinyl ether with the tosylate (or mesylate) of oligo-/or methoxypoly(oxyethylene) in tetrahydrofuran.
