Thus, it is desirable that compositions be found which have the highest detergency effectiveness and, particularly, it is desirable that compositions be found which are superior to other synthetic detergents with respect to detergency effectiveness.
In industrial laundering practice, two general temperature ranges are employed depending on the type of fabric and dyes involved. For white cottons and fast-colored cotton, the temperature of the detergent solution is usually'about 140-160 F. On the other hand, for woolens, delicate synthetic fabrics and fabrics containing dyes which tend to run at 140-160 F., the laundering process is usually carried out at about 90-95 F. It is under the tion Serial No. 316,984 was a continuation-in-part of my application Serial No. 153,946, filed April 4, 1950, now abandoned.
A basically new approach for the chemical structure of a polyoxyalkylene nonionic surface active agent is dis- 1 closed in U.S. 2,674,619. Prior to the disclosure of U.S. 2,674,619, polyoxyalkylene nonionic surface active agents were known which were composed of a long hydrocarbon chain or alkyl-substituted ring compound, e.g., nonylphenol, and a water-solubilizing polyoxyethylene chain.
The compositions disclosed in U.S. 2,674,619 depart from of ethylene oxide condensed with the polyoxypropylene chain. The compositions of US. 2,674,619 are initially prepared by condensing the required amount of propylene oxide with a lower molecular weight reactive hydrogen compound, followed by condensation with ethylene oxide so as to produce water solubility and introduce surface active properties. The disclosure of U.S. 2,674,619 teaches thatany of a broad group of reactive hydrogen compounds can be used which have at least two reactive hydrogen atoms and are relatively low molecular weight materials which arenot hydrophobic in and of themselves. It is indicated that, ordinarily, the reactive hydrogen compound constitutes such a relatively small proportion of the block polymer surfactant composition that the reactive hydrogen compound has little or no material effect on the properties of the final detergent composition.
Although such nonionic surface active agents have important "and unique chemical and physical properties,
many uses of these compounds are based on their effective- 1 ness as detergents and in many cases the polyoxyalkylene nonionic surface active agents are in direct competition with Other different synthetic detergents, such as the welllatter condition that the compositions of this invention,
as aspecifal class, are unusually superior to those generally disclosed'in U.S. 2,674,619.
An object of this invention is, therefore, to provide polyoxyalkylene nonionic surface active agents which have improved effectiveness as detergents.
which is, therefore, a specific improvement over the general' class of such detergents disclosed in U.S. 2,674,619.
I'have found that the foregoing objectives and others to be indicated herein are attained by polyoxyalkylene nonionic surface active agents of the general class disclosed in U.S. 2,674,619 but where the reactive hydrogen compound employed is one of a specific class of reactive hydrogen compounds, i.e., nitrogen-containing reactive hydrogen compounds. The polyoxyalkylene nonionic detergent compositions of this invention constitute a superior classof detergents in several respects when compared to the polyoxyalkylene nonionic detergent compositions of U.S. 2,674,619 as exemplified by those prepared with propylene glycol as the reactive hydrogen compound. Specifically, nitrogen-containing polyoxyalkylene nonionic detergent compositions of this invention can be prepared which produce higher detergency effectiveness than that of other propylene glycol-based compositions disclosed in U.S. 2,674,619 regardless of the proportions of propylene oxide and ethylene oxide employed in preparing the latter. The nitrogen-containing compositions of this invention have unusually superior detergency effectiveness in relatively cold water, i.e., at F. Thus, nitrogen-containing polyoxyalkylene compositions of this invention can be and have been prepared which are better detergents "at 90 F. than can be prepared using propylene'glycol or other reactive hydrogen compounds disclosed in U.S. 2,674,619 regardless of the proportions of propylene oxide and ethylene oxide used inthe latter. Furthermore, the compositions of this invention are at least as efiective at F., and usually more effective, detergents than are such compositions of U.S. 2,674,619.
Thus, the compositions of this invention constitute a specific class of compositions within the scope of the disclosure of U.S. 2,674,619 but possessing unusually superior detergency properties when compared to other compositions of the broad class disclosed in the patent.
The compositions of this invention possess a still further unique and characterizing feature when compared to the glycol-based surfactants disclosed in U.S. 2,674,619
of this invention and which greatly reduce undesirable lime soap formation by maintaining the lime soap curds in a dispersed condition.
It will be recognized from the foregoing that the significant and characterizing feature of the compositions of this invention is the class of reactive hydrogen compounds that is employed. The reactive hydrogen compound must contain at least one nitrogen atom and contain at least two reactive hydrogen atoms and not more than about six reactive hydrogen atoms. Usually, at least one of the reactive hydrogen atoms is attached to a nitrogen atom. An exception is in the case where the reactive hydrogen compound is derived from a reactive hydrogen compound in which one or more reactive hydrogen atoms were attached to a nitrogen atom. Triisopropanolamine, derived from ammonia and propylene oxide, is an example of the latter. The expression reactive hydrogen atom is well known to those skilled in the art of alkylene oxide chemistry. It may be stated, however, that the expression reactive hydrogen atom. is used in this application to mean that the compound contains a hydrogen atom which is sufiiciently labile to open the epoxide ring of 1,2-propylene oxide and will react with methyl magnesium iodide to liberate methane in the classical Zerewitinofii reaction (see Niederl and Niederl, Micromethods of Quantitative Organic Analysis, page 263, John Wiley & Sons, New York City, 1946).
An equally important characteristic of the class of nitrogen-cntaining reactive hydrogen compounds is that the compounds used must be relatively lower molecular weight compounds which are not essentially hydrophobic in and of themselves. By this is meant that the condensation product of the reactive hydrogen compound with ethylene oxide alone would not yield a detergent having a carbon soil removal value of 100 by the procedure for determining the carbon soil removal value set forth in U.S. 2,674,619, column-6, lines 11-75 and column 7, lines 1-49. Thus, the nitrogen-containing reactive hydrogen compound used is one which is not sufliciently hydrophobic so that it could serve as the hydrophobic element of a nonionic surfactant and the latter must be provided by the defined oxypropylene chains in the compositions. Generally, the nitrogen-containing reactive hydrogen compound has up to about six, in-- elusive, carbon atoms. When the nitrogen-containing reactive hydrogen compound is so defined, there still remains a reasonably broad group of such compounds which can be used. Ammonia, primary amines, alkylene polyamines, alkanolamines, heterocyclic nitrogen compounds are examples of the classes of nitrogen-containing reactive hydrogen compounds which can be used.
Thus, primary amines having not over six carbon atoms such as methylamine, ethylamine, propylamine, butylamine, amylamine, hexylamine and aniline are satisfactory. Alkylene polyamines, especially aliphatic primary diamines, having not over six carbon atoms are the preferred reactive hydrogen compounds since the highest detergency values have been obtained when these were used. These include ethylenediamine, diethylenetriamine, triethylenetetramine, tetraethylenepentamine, hexamethylenediamine, phenylenediamine and the like. Alkanolamines having not over six carbon atoms can be used such as monoethanolarnine, diethanolamine, triethanolamine, isopropanolamine, tri(2-propanol)a mine, Z-aminol-butanol, N-butyl-di(2-propanol)amine and the like. Furthermore, heterocyclic nitrogen compounds containing a hetero N atom can be employed, such as piperazine, Z-methylpiperazine, 2,5-dimethylpiperazine, imidazimidazole, pyrazolidine, pyrazolidone, hydantoin, dimethylhydantoin and the like. Hydroxyl amine and the hydroxylamine derivatives and aminophenol and aminophenol derivatives can also be used.
The compositions of this invention are surface active mixtures of conjugated polyoxypropylene-polyoxyethylene compounds based on the nitrogen-containing reactive 5 harness a p ,--.a
hydrogen compound wherein chains of oxypropylene groups having a defined molecular weight are attached to the nucleus of the reactive hydrogen compound at the sites of the reactive hydrogen atoms and wherein chains of oxyethylene groups are attached to the ends of the oxypropylene chains. The compositions are prepared by condensing propylene oxide with the nitrogen-containing reactive hydrogen compound and subsequentlycondensing ethylene oxide with the propylene oxide-reactive hydrogen compound condensate.
The collective molecular weight of the oxypropylene chains attached to the nitrogen-containing reactive hydrogen compound must be at least about 900 and can range up to about 25,000 or higher. Since the reactive hydrogen compound employed is one having not more than about six carbon atoms, it is not sufficiently hydrophobic in and of itself so that a detergent would be obtained by simply condensing ethylene oxide with the reactive hydrogen compound. Therefore, the hydrophobic element of the surface active compositions of the invention necessarily is found in the defined oxypropylene chains. This significant feature distinguishes the compositions from those known in the art prior to U.S. 2,674,619 wherein propylene oxide and ethylene oxide were treated as comparable materials and condensed with long carbon chain reactive hydrogen compounds in order to introduce water solubility. The compositions of this invention rely on the hydrophobic oxypropylene chain just as do the compositions of U.S. 2,674,619, but distinguish over the general broad class of compositions disclosed in U.S. 2,674,619 by virtue of the specific class of reactive hydrogen compounds here employed. The advantages for the compositions of this invention set forth hereinabove are obtained when the compositions have oxypropylene chains having a molecular weight of at least about 900 and up to 25,000. The best detergent compositions are obtained, however, when the molecular weight of the oxypropylene chains is in the range of about 1000 to 15,000. The molecular weight stated and that reported in the examples to follow is for the molecular weight of the oxypropylene chains themselves and does not include the molecular weight of the particular reactive hydrogen compound employed.
It is to be noted that it is not necessary to use pure propylene oxide in producing the oxypropylene chains of the detergent compositions, although this is preferred. Small amounts, for example up to about 5 weight percent, of ethylene oxide can be included in the propylene oxide employed to prepare the hydrophobic reactive hydrogen compound-propylene oxide condensate without significant alteration of the detergent properties of the final composition. In this connection, the ethylene oxide subsequently condensed with the hydrophobic propylene oxide-reactive hydrogen compound condensate can also contain small amounts, such as up to about 5 weight percent, of propylene oxide without significant alteration of the detergent properties of the compositions of the invention.
It is further to be noted that when molecular weight is stated in this specification and claims, unless otherwise noted, there is meant the average theoretical molecular weight which equals the total of the grams of the propylene oxide employed per mol of reactive hydrogen compound. It is well recognized in the field of alkylene oxide chemistry that the polyoxyalkylene compositions one obtains by condensing an alkylene oxide with a reactive hydrogen compound are actually mixtures of compounds rather than a single molecular compound. The mixture contains closely related homologues wherein the statistical average number of oxyalkylene groups equals the number of mols of the alkylene oxide employed and the individual members in the mixture contain varying numbers of oxyalkylene groups. Thus, the compositions of this invention are mixtures of compounds which are defined by molecular weight of the polyoxypropylene chains and weight percent of oxyethylene groups.
As has been noted above, the compositions of the invention contain chains of oxyethylene groups attached to the oxypropylene chains. formed by condensing ethylene oxide with the propylene oxide-reactive hydrogen compound condensate. The ;amount of ethylene oxide employed is such that the oxyethylene groups constituteabout 20 to 90weight percent of the final composition. Compositions having outstanding detergent properties are obtained when the weight percent of oxyethylene groups falls within this range. The very highest detergency values at 90 F." have been obtained in compositions of the invention having from about 25 to 55 weight percent of oxyethylene groups. The condensation of propylene oxide with the nitrogencontaining reactive hydrogen compound and the subse- .quent condensation of ethylene oxide therewith are carried out in the known manner for condensing alkylene oxides with reactive hydrogen compounds. The process is normally carried out at elevated temperatures and pressures in the presence of alkaline catalysts, such as sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide, sodium alkoxide, qua- Zternary ammonium bases, and thelike. The condensation reactions can also be carried out in the presence of acidcatalysts. The manipulative steps will vary to some extent depending'upon the normal'physical state of the reactive hydrogen compound. Certain of these compounds are normally gases, e.g., ammonia and methylamine, and propylene oxide can be condensed with these compounds by carrying out the reaction under sufficient pressure to liquefy the nitrogen-containing reactive hydrogen compound, or the normally gaseous nitrogencontaining reactive hydrogen compound can be dissolved in an inert solvent. Similarly, if the reactive hydrogen compound is a solid at reaction temperatures, ,it is normally dissolved in an inert solvent. After a few mols of propylene oxide havebeen condensed with the reactive Yhydrogen compound, the adduct becomes a liquid and the inert solvent can be removed by distillation. Thereafter, it is preferred to simply add the propylene oxide to ,the liquid reaction mixture without the use of a solvent. Although the reaction of propylene oxide with the reactive hydrogen compound can be carried out by simply heating a mixture of the reactants under pressure at a sufiiciently high temperature, this method is not ordifnarily used as the temperatures and pressure required are excessive and control of the reaction is difiicult. The preferred method is to add the propylene oxide to' a stirred and heated mixture of the desired nitrogen-containing reactive hydrogen compound and an alkaline catalyst'in' a sealed reaction vessel. By adding the propylene oxide "to the reaction vessel at such a rate that it reacts as rapidly, as added, an excess of propylene oxide is avoided and control of the reaction is simplified. The condensation of ethylene oxide with the propylene oxide-reactive hydrogen compound condensateis carried out in an analogousmanner.
" l EXAMPLES A series of compositions according to this invention was prepared using exemplary nitrogen-containing reacgive". hydrogen compounds and varying amounts of propylene oxide and ethylene oxide. The procedure by .which these compositions were made is that generallyset forthin U.S. 2,674,619. The initial reaction of the The oxyethylene chains are I.
nitrogen-containing reactive hydrogen compound with propylene oxide was carried out in two or three stages ,due to volume limitations imposedby the reactors employed. Due to the basic nature of the nitrogen-conitaining reactive hydrogen compounds, the first stage re- ,action. with propylene oxide was carried out in the presence of about 10 weight percent of water and sub- ;Seqirhtcondensations with propylene oxide and ethylene [oxide were carried out with added potassium or sodium "hydroxide as the catalyst.

These compositions are summarized below in Table I together with the results of detergency tests in terms of carbon soil removal values at F. The compositions are characterized by the molecular weight of the oxypropylene chains and weight percent or the oxyethylene chains. The molecular weight of the oxypropylene chains is the theoretical molecular weight based on the weight in grams of propylene oxide used per mol of reactiveihy- 'drogen compound and the weight percent of oxyethylene chains is based on the weight of the total composition.
The carbon soil removal values were obtained by the procedure set forth in U.S. 2,674,619, previouslycited, except that the test solutions were 0.10% oncentration instead of 0.25% concentration as set' forth in U.S. 2,674,619.
