For the purposes of this chapter, aminopolymers are defined as polymers formed by the interaction of amines or amides with aldehydes. Of the various polymers of this type which have been investigated, only two are currently of appreciable commercial importance, namely urea-formaldehyde and melamine-formaldehyde polymers. In addition, melamine-phenol-formaldehyde and benzoguanamine-formaldehyde polymers find limited application. In the past there has been some commercial interest in thiourea-formaldehyde and aniline-formaldehyde polymers but these products are now of little importance. The aforementioned polymers form the contents of this chapter.
