Title: Thermoplastic polyurethanes with controlled morphology based on methylenediphenyldiisocyanate/isosorbide/butanediol hard segments: Thermoplastic polyurethanes with controlled morphology

Abstract

Isosorbide, a cyclic, rigid and renewable diol was used as a chain extender in two series of thermoplastic polyurethanes. Isosorbide was used in combination with butane diol or alone to examine the effects on polyurethane morphology. Two series of materials were prepared -one with dispersed hard domains in the matrix of polytetramethylene ether glycol soft segments of molecular weight 1400 (at 70% soft segment concentration-SSC) and the other with co-continuous soft and hard phases at 50% SSC. Morphology of materials was studied by optical and atomic force microscopy, as well as with ultra small angle x-ray scattering (USAXS). The radius of spherical hard domains, correlation lengths, mean separation distances and boundary layer thickness were measured as a function of isosorbide content.
