Abstract:  A mathematical model is proposed for acid-catalyzed polyaddition of 1-chloro-2,3-epoxy-2-methylpropane to lower aliphatic alcohols. Based on simplifying assumptions the distribution of the products, depending upon the initial molar ratio of the alcohol to the epoxide, is calculated for four addition steps and complete conversion of the epoxide. The validity of the model has been verified on the reaction of l-chloro-2,3-epoxy-2-methylpropane with 1-propanol at 35°C in the presence of a catalytic amount of boron trifluoride etherate. The distribution constants for this particular case have been found by comparing the calculated and experimentally found amounts of alcohol and of the products after the first polyaddition step.
