Polyisocyanates can be stabilized by capping a living polymer chain amidate anion with an acyl chloride in the presence of an amine catalyst.
As pointed out above, the amines were derivatized using (R)-MTP chloride as a HCDA, but as a result of the sequence rules, the configurational designation of the chiral center in the acyl MTP moiety changed from R- in the acyl chloride to S- in the amide derivatives.
