  • Patent number: 10975215
    Abstract: Polymer polyols are made in a seeded process, in which styrene and acrylonitrile are polymerized in the presence of a base polyol, a seed dispersion and a solvent. The seed dispersion contains an unsaturated macromer. The process produces a polymer polyol in which the dispersed phase particles have a particle size of 1 to 3 ?m and a particle size span of less than 1.25. The polymer polyols are very useful for making flexible polyurethane foam for cushioning applications, in which high airflows and good load bearing are needed.

  • Patent number: 10968284
    Abstract: The present invention is a multilayered composite comprising porous metal oxide particles that are covalently bonded by way of inorganic ether groups to one or more sites of a first polyhydroxyl-functionalized polymer. This first polymer is in turn covalently bonded by way of inorganic ether groups to one or more sites of a second polyhydroxyl-functionalized polymer. The multilayered composites can be prepared by contacting porous inorganic-oxide particles with a sufficient amount of OH-reactive crosslinking agent to form metal oxide particles imbibed with the crosslinking agent, and then contacting the inorganic-oxide particles with a solution of polyhydroxyl-functionalized polymer under reactive conditions.
