INTRODUCTION

Allyl Glycidyl Ether (AGE) is a multifunctional organic intermediate made from epichlorohydrin and allyl chloride and is featured by high functionality and low chlorine content. Since it has an epoxy group and an allyl group, AGE reacts with a wide range of compounds.

MANUFACTURE

The synthesis process includes the ring opening reaction of materials allyl alcohol and epoxy chloropropane under the action of solid acid catalyst to prepare the intermediate allyl chlorohydrin; and the subsequent ring closing reaction with sodium hydroxide to prepare allyl glycidyl ether.
