The solubility of methylol urea in water was obtained by mixing 1 ml of the resin with 5ml of distilled water at room temperature (30[degrees]C).
Figure 1 shows the effect of viscosity on the melting point of methylol urea. The melting point initially increased rapidly with viscosity and slowly approached an asymptotic value at the gel point.
This experiment examined the effect of viscosity on some physical properties of methylol urea synthesized through the OSP synthetic route.
Figure 3 represents the effect of temperature on the refractive index of methylol urea resins.
Figure 4 shows the influence of catalyst on the density of methylol urea. The density decreased with increase in NaHP concentration.
