SUGAR-BASED POLYURETHANES, METHODS FOR THEIR PREPARATION, AND METHODS OF USE THEREOF

Polyurethane foams which are highly flame resistant are described, as well as the production of such polyurethane foams by the reaction between a natural polyol, such as sucrose or a blend of mono- or disaccharides in place of the standard hydrocarbon-based polyol component, a polyisocyanate and water in the presence of a suitable polyurethane forming catalyst and a flame retardant, and optionally one or more components such as surfactants and/or emulsifiers. The resultant polyurethane foam is at least 80% green as a biobased solid based on the resin blend, may be formulated in a variety of foam densities for a variety of applications, and exhibits a high degree of burn resistance.
