6], multifunctional monomers, such as trimethylolpropane (TMP), trimethylolethane (TME), pentaerythritol, and trimesic acid, can be used to synthesize high molecular weight branched poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET).
In the formulation given in Table 2, trimethylolethane (three carbinol groups) is used as the main polyol instead of pentaerythritol (four carbinol groups), and the anhydride:polyol molar ratio is less than 1.
