Abstract:
The alkali-catalyzed reaction of dimethylol monoalkyl carbamates with cotton cellulose proceeds through only one of the N-methylol groups and produces no cross linking. This results from à different reactivity in the second methylol group, after the first has reacted. The reaction produces a cotton containing amido hydrogens whose number or properties vary with the alkyl group of the carbamate.
