Polyoyl in detailing product

Not all products in the world of detailing are made with or from just one polymer. Take for example Alyd resins, that is highly used as a binder in many oil-based coatings. Alkyd resins are low molecular weight polyols that are very popular due to their unique properties. Polymer chemistry is a field of work that is commonly used within the world of detailing to create synthetic products and/or to enhance natural products. Even the foam used to create polishing pad can be subjected to these practises.

Polyol in Nano-products

The preparation of metal nanoparticles often employ the “polyol method.” In such cases, the polyol is usually a long chain diol such as hexadecanediol. Such diols serve as both reductants and surface-protecting agents for the nanoparticles.
