  • Patent number: 9187504
    Abstract: A method of making hydroxymethylphosphonate comprising heating paraformaldehyde in a solvent to a desired reaction temperature, wherein the solvent is present in at least an amount necessary to solvate or suspend the paraformaldehyde; adding at least one alkyl phosphite to the heated paraformaldehyde, to provide hydroxymethylphosphonate, the alkyl phosphite being added to the heated paraformaldehyde at a rate which will avoid or inhibit the production of a significant exotherm and resulting high/significant level of acid by-product(s), there being present in the reaction medium at least one hindered amine catalyst in which the nitrogen in the amine is directly bound to a secondary and/or tertiary carbon of an organic group; and, optionally, following the completion of the addition, heating the reaction mixture to an elevated temperature.

  • Publication number: 20130260626
    Abstract: The present invention relates to solid phosphate ester, which can be used as a flame retardant in treatments for textile substrates. More specifically, the treatments for textiles substrates can be used as flame retardant formulations for application on textile fabrics while substantially maintaining the desired characteristics (aesthetic or textural properties) of the textile. The present invention thus further provides for articles having these phosphate ester formulations applied thereon, and of processes of applying them onto various textile substrates.
