The alkoxylation of 2,4-toluylene diamine, polyhalogenated phenols, and polyfluoro alcohols with alkylene oxides such as ethylene oxide, propylene oxide, and glycidol was studied. The majority of the reaction products was water-soluble, met the specifications for flash points and flame points but failed to pass the autogenous ignition test. Alkoxylation of methylene dianilines, methylene diphenols, p,p-diphenol, hydroxymethyl diphenyloxides, and hydroxydiphenyl oxides with ethylene oxide andor glycidol gave a variety of watersoluble products which met the specifications for flash point, flame point, and autogenous ignition temperature. None of the alkoxylated products met the viscosity specification of 850 cs or below at 25F after being adjusted to 28 3 cs at 150F by addition of water. Author
