Abstract

For the purposes of this chapter, polyurethanes are defined as polymers which contain urethane groups (-NH-CO-O-) in the main polymer chain. However, it is to be noted that in technologically useful polymers of this type the urethane group is not usually the principal group present; other groups such as ester, ether, amide and urea groups are generally contained in the polymer chain in appreciable number.
