  • Patent number: 4546180
    Abstract: A process for preparing certain phosphite-isocyanurate oligomers. The process requires the reaction of a trishydroxyalkyl isocyanurate with a tris-organophosphite and, optionally, an alcohol or alkylphenol. The process is promoted by an alkaline catalyst such as sodium methoxide. The oligomeric product is useful as a thermal stabilizer in polymer compositions.
