Aliphatic Polyether: Introduction

  • Polyethers are used as standalone polymers in a variety of important day-to-day applications
  • Major aliphatic polyethers include polyoxymethylene (POM), polyoxyethylene (POE as well as PEO), and polytetrahydrofuran (PTHF), which is also called polybutylene oxide
  • Aliphatic polyether imparts toughness and strength to coatings and fabrics. Aliphatic polyethers make some of the most important biomedical devices functional without causing harm to human bodies.
  • Polyoxymethylene (POM) is used as a soft segment in polyurethanes. It is also used to make automotive gears. When polyoxyethylene (POE) is grafted onto other polymers or surfaces, those surfaces become biocompatible. This makes it applicable in medical devices. Polytetrahydrofuran (PTHF) plays an important role in many condensation polymers such as polyesters and polyurethanes.
