Polyalkylpiperidine derivatives of s-triazine

Abstract

s-Triazine derivatives which contain, as substituents in the 2-, 4- and 6-position, at least one polyalkylpiperidine radical and at least one N-methylolamino group or an ether thereof, are effective stabilisers for plastics, in particular against light degradation. By virtue of their N-methylol group, they are able to enter into a chemical bond with many plastics and this renders them stable to migration and elution.

Description



The invention relates to novel polyalkylpiperidine derivatives of s-triazines and their use as stabilisers for plastics.

s-Triazine derivatives which have substituents containing at least one polyalkylpiperidine radical are known from German Offenlegungsschrift No. 2,319,816. These compounds are effective stabilisers for plastics, in particular against light degradation. For specific applications, however, these triazine derivatives have too high a volatility and tendency to migrate. This is in particular the case when the plastic is used in thin layers, for example in fibres, films or lacquers, and stabilisation over a relatively long period is required.

Attempts have therefore been made to increase the molecular weight of such triazine-piperidine derivatives and thereby to lower their volatility and tendency to migrate. In German Offenlegungsschrift No. 2,636,130, for example, it is proposed to link several piperidine-substituted triazine radicals via a polyvalent compound, for example a polyamine. In German Offenlegungsschrift No. 2,636,144, piperidine-substituted polycondensation products of difunctional triazine derivatives are proposed as stabilisers. Polytriazines of this type also form a physical mixture with the stabilised plastic and can be removed from this mixture again, for example by extraction. This is of practical utility, for example, in the weathering of plastics outdoors or in solvent-resistant coatings and lacquers.

The object of the invention is to provide stabilisers which are based on piperidine-triazines and which can enter into a chemical bond with the polymer to be protected and thus cannot be removed from the plastic either by migration or by elution.

It has been possible to achieve this object by the preparation of novel s-triazine derivatives which contain, as substituents in the 2-, 4- and 6-position, at least one polyalkylpiperidine radical and at least one N-methylolamino group, or the ethers thereof. These compounds can be mono- or polytriazines.

Accordingly, the invention concerns in particular compounds of the formula I or II ##STR1## in which m is an integer from 1 to 4 and n is a value from 2 to 50, X and X' are --O--, --S-- or --NR.sup.6 --, in which R.sup.6 is hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.18 alkyl, C.sub.3 -C.sub.8 alkenyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 hydroxyalkyl, C.sub.2 -C.sub.13 alkoxyalkyl, C.sub.5 -C.sub.12 cycloalkyl, C.sub.6 -C.sub.10 aryl, C.sub.7 -C.sub.9 phenylalkyl or a polyalkylpiperidine group of the formula III ##STR2## in which R is hydrogen or methyl, p is 0 or 1, A is C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 -alkylene, --NR.sup.6 --C.sub.2 --C.sub.12 -alkylene- or --OCH.sub.2 CH.sub.2 CH.sub.2 -- and R is H, O, C.sub.1 -C.sub.12 -alkyl, allyl, benzyl or a --CH.sub.2 CH(R.sup.8)--OH group, in which R.sup.8 is H, CH.sub.3, C.sub.2 H.sub.5 or phenyl, and R.sup.1 and R.sup.3 are hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.18 alkyl, C.sub.3 -C.sub.8 alkenyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 hydroxyalkyl, C.sub.2 -C.sub.13 alkoxyalkyl, C.sub.5 -C.sub.12 cycloalkyl, C.sub.6 -C.sub.10 aryl, C.sub.7 -C.sub.9 phenylalkyl, phenyl or phenylalkyl which is substituted by 1 or 2 C.sub.1 -C.sub.8 alkyl groups and/or OH and/or C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkoxy, or a polyalkylpiperidine group of the formula III, R.sup.2 is hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.18 alkyl, C.sub.3 -C.sub.8 alkenyl, C.sub.2 -C.sub.6 hydroxyalkyl or C.sub.3 -C.sub.6 alkoxyalkyl, R.sup.4, if m is 1, is hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.18 alkyl, C.sub.3 -C.sub.8 alkenyl, C.sub.2 -C.sub.4 hydroxyalkyl, C.sub.3 -C.sub.6 alkoxyalkyl, C.sub.5 -C.sub.10 aryl, C.sub.7 -C.sub.9 phenylalkyl, phenyl or phenylalkyl which is substituted by 1 or 2 C.sub.1 -C.sub.8 alkyl groups and/or OH and/or C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkoxy, or a polyalkylpiperidine group of the formula III, and if m is 2 is C.sub.2 -C.sub.12 alkylene or oxaalkylene, C.sub.4 -C.sub.12 alkenylene, C.sub. 6 -C.sub.10 arylene, a -phenylene-Z-phenylene-radical, in which Z is --O--, --S--, --SO.sub.2 --, --CH.sub.2 -- or --C(CH.sub.3).sub.2 --, or a radical of the formula --(CH.sub.2).sub.r --NY--(CH.sub.2).sub.r --NY].sub.q (CH.sub.2).sub.r --, wherein r is 2 or 3 and q is 0 or 1 and Y is a triazinyl group of the formula IV, ##STR3## and if m is 3 is a R.sup.8 --C(CH.sub.2 --).sub.3 radical, in which R.sup.8 is C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl, and if m is 4 is a C(CH.sub.2 --).sub.4 radical, R.sup.5 is C.sub.2 -C.sub.12 alkylene and E and E' are corresponding end groups and at least one of the radicals R.sup.1, R.sup.3, R.sup.4 or R.sup.6 is a piperidine radical of the formula III.

These compounds are able, by virtue of their >N--CH.sub.2 OR.sup.2 groups, to enter into a chemical reaction with the polymeric substrates if the latter possess a reactive group. Reactive groups are groups with labile hydrogen atoms, i.e. in particular OH and NH groups. If R.sup.2 is hydrogen or if R.sup.1, R.sup.2, R.sup.3, R.sup.4 or R.sup.6 is hydroxyalkyl, the compounds of the formula I and II can also react with groups which are capable of reaction with OH, for example epoxide groups or isocyanate groups. The compounds of the formula I and II are therefore suitable in particular for stabilising polymers or prepolymers which have reactive groups, for example melamine, urea or alkyd resins, polyurethanes, crosslinkable acrylic resins or epoxide resins. However, the compounds of the formula I and II are also suitable for stabilising polymers which do not have any reactive groups. In this case they are in the form of a physical mixture and at elevated temperature can self-condense, which results in a further increase in the size of the molecule.

In the formulae I and II, R.sup.1, R.sup.2, R.sup.3, R.sup.4 and R.sup.6 can be C.sub.1 -C.sub.18 alkyl; this can be unbranched or branched alkyl, for example methyl, ethyl, propyl, isopropyl, butyl, sec.-butyl, tert.-butyl, hexyl, octyl, 2-ethylhexyl, decyl, dodecyl, tetradecyl or octadecyl.

R.sup.1, R.sup.2, R.sup.3, R.sup.4 and R.sup.6 can be C.sub.3 -C.sub.8 alkenyl; this can be unbranched or branched, for example allyl, methallyl, 2,2-dimethyl-but-3-enyl or 2-vinylpropyl.

R.sup.1, R.sup.3 and R.sup.6 as C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 hydroxyalkyl can be, for example, hydroxymethyl, 2-hydroxyethyl, 2-hydroxypropyl, 3-hydroxypropyl or 2-hydroxybutyl. R.sup.2 and R.sup.4 can be the same radicals with the exception of hydroxymethyl.

R.sup.1, R.sup.3 and R.sup.6 as C.sub.2 -C.sub.13 alkoxyalkyl can be, in particular, alkoxymethyl, alkoxyethyl and alkoxypropyl, for example methoxymethyl, butoxymethyl, octyloxymethyl, methoxyethyl, hexyloxyethyl or ethoxypropyl. R.sup.2 and R.sup.4 as C.sub.3 -C.sub.6 alkoxyalkyl can be in particular, alkoxyethyl.

R.sup.1, R.sup.3 and R.sup.6 as cycloalkyl can be, for example, cyclopentyl, cyclohexyl, methylcyclohexyl, cyclooctyl, cyclodecyl, or cyclododecyl.

R.sup.1, R.sup.3, R.sup.4 and R.sup.6 as C.sub.6 -C.sub.10 aryl can be phenyl or naphthyl.

R.sup.1, R.sup.3 and R.sup.4 as substituted phenyl can be, for example, tolyl, ethylphenyl, tert-butylphenyl, methoxyphenyl, hydroxyphenyl, isopropoxyphenyl, 3,5-di-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl or 2,4-dimethylphenyl.

R.sup.1, R.sup.3, R.sup.4 and R.sup.6 as C.sub.7 -C.sub.9 phenylalkyl can be, for example, benzyl, phenylethyl or phenylpropyl.

R.sup.4 and R.sup.5 as C.sub.2 -C.sub.12 alkylene or oxaalkylene can be, for example, 1,2-ethylene, 1,1-ethylene,1,2-propylene, 1,4-butylene, 1,1,3-trimethyl-1,4-butylene, 3-oxa-1,5-pentylene, 1,6-hexylene, 4-oxa-1,7-heptylene, 1,8-octylene or 1,12-dodecylene.

R.sup.4 as C.sub.4 -C.sub.12 alkylene can be, for example, 1,4-but-2-enylene or 1,6-hex-3-enylene.

R.sup.4 as C.sub.6 -C.sub.10 arylene can be, for example, phenylene or naphthylene.

In the compounds of the formula I, m is an integer from 1 to 4 and R.sup.4 is a m-valent radical. The compounds are thus unitary compounds.

The compounds of the formula II, on the other hand, are oligomers or polymers which are usually obtained as a mixture in which the degree of polymerisation n varies. The degree of polymerisation n, which can be ascertained by determining the molecular weight, is therefore an average value and can be a decimal number (for example 5.6). Depending on the method used to determine the molecular weight, the average value can be a number-average or weight-average.

The end groups E and E' result from the method of preparation. E can be, for example, hydrogen, alkyl or HX--R.sup.5 --; E' is preferably --XH.

Preferred compounds of the formulae I and II are those in which R is hydrogen. Further preferred compounds of the formula I or II are those in which X and X' are a --NR.sup.6 -- group.

Preferred compounds of the formula I are those in which m is 1 or 2, X and X' are a --NR.sup.6 -- group, in which R.sup.6 is hydrogen, C.sub.3 -C.sub.8 alkyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.2 hydroxyalkyl, C.sub.2 -C.sub.4 alkoxyalkyl, cyclohexyl, benzyl or a polyalkylpiperidine group of the formula III, R.sup.1 and R.sup.3 are hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.2 hydroxyalkyl, C.sub.2 -C.sub.3 alkoxyalkyl or a piperidine radical of the formula III, in which p is nought, R is hydrogen and R.sup.7 is hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl or hydroxyethyl, R.sup.2 is hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl or allyl and R.sup.4, if m is 1, is hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl, hydroxyethyl, benzyl or a piperidine radical of the formula III, and, if m is 2, is C.sub.2 -C.sub.6 alkylene, -phenylene-CH.sub.2 -phenylene or a radical --CH.sub.2 CH.sub.2 --NY--CH.sub.2 CH.sub.2 --NY].sub.q CH.sub.2 CH.sub.2 --, in which q is nought or 1 and Y is a triazinyl group of the formula IV.

Preferred compounds of the formula II are those in which n is 2 to 10, X is a --NR.sup.6 -- group, in which R.sup.6 is hydrogen, C.sub.3 -C.sub.8 alkyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.2 hydroxyalkyl, C.sub.2 -C.sub.4 alkoxyalkyl, cyclohexyl, benzyl or a polyalkylpiperidino group of formula III, R.sub.1 is hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 -alkyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.2 hydroxyalkyl, C.sub.2 -C.sub.3 alkoxyalkyl or a piperidine radical of the formula III, in which p is nought, R is hydrogen and R.sup.7 is hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl or hydroxyethyl, R.sup.2 is hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl or allyl and R.sup.5 is C.sub.2 -C.sub.8 alkylene.

Examples of compounds of the formula I in which m=1 are the compounds in the following table:

__________________________________________________________________________ R.sup.1 R.sup.2 R.sup.3 R.sup.4 X X' __________________________________________________________________________ H H C.sub.4 H.sub.9 C.sub.4 H.sub.9 ##STR4## ##STR5## CH.sub.2 OCH.sub.3 CH.sub.3 C.sub.2 H.sub.5 C.sub.2 H.sub.5 ##STR6## ##STR7## H C.sub.2 H.sub.5 ##STR8## CH.sub.2 OC.sub.2 H.sub.5 ##STR9## NH CH.sub.2 OH H ##STR10## CH.sub.2 OH NH ##STR11## CH.sub.2 OCH.sub.3 CH.sub.3 ##STR12## ##STR13## O O H CH.sub.2 CHCH.sub.2 ##STR14## ##STR15## NH NH H C.sub.4 H.sub.9 CH.sub.3 CH.sub.3 ##STR16## ##STR17## H CH.sub.3 C.sub.2 H.sub.5 ##STR18## ##STR19## ##STR20## CH.sub.2 OCH.sub.3 CH.sub.3 ##STR21## ##STR22## ##STR23## NH __________________________________________________________________________

Examples of compounds of the formula II are the following compounds: ##STR28##

The compounds of the formulae I and II can be prepared by known methods. The compounds of the formula I can be prepared, for example, from cyanuric acid chloride by stepwise replacement of the chlorine atoms by the radicals R.sup.3 X--, R.sup.4 X'-- and --NH.sub.2 or --NHR.sup.1 and subsequent introduction of the --CH.sub.2 OR.sup.2 group. The --CH.sub.2 OR.sup.2 group is introduced by reacting the corresponding aminotriazine compound with formaldehyde by the general method of Gams, Widmer and Fisch (Helv. Chim. Acta 24 (1941) 1). If the reaction with formaldehyde is carried out in an aqueous medium, the N-methylol compounds (R.sup.2 =H) are formed, whilst if the reaction is carried out in alcohols in the presence of acids, the corresponding N-alkoxymethyl compounds (R.sup.2 =alkyl) are obtained. The latter compounds can, however, also be obtained by etherification of the methylol compounds. Further details can be taken from the examples.

The compounds of the formula II can be prepared by reacting 1-amino-3,5-dichlorotriazine with a difunctional compound HX--R.sup.5 --XH and subsequent reaction of the reaction product with formaldehyde. If an excess of the compound HX--R.sup.5 --XH is used, there are obtained relatively low molecular weight compounds of the formula II in which the end group E is HX--R.sup.5 -- and E' is XH. If a stoichiometric amount of the compound HX--R.sup.5 --XH is used, there are obtained products with higher molecular weight which in addition contain chlorine end groups. During the subsequent reaction with formaldehyde, these chlorine end groups are converted to R.sup.2 O end groups (E=H or alkyl). The hydrogen chloride formed during the polycondensation reaction is neutralised by addition of organic or inorganic bases. The resulting salt is removed by washing with water.

The products of the formulae I and II have good stability to hydrolysis. They are readily soluble in most organic polymers and even in small concentrations effect stabilisation of the polymers against ageing, especially against photochemical degradation. Examples of polymers which are usually damaged by the action of light and can be stabilised by the addition of compounds of the formula I or II are:

1. Polymers of mono- and di-olefins, for example polyethylene (which can be crosslinked), polypropylene, polyisobutylene, polymethylbut-1-ene, polymethylpent-1-ene, polyisoprene or polybutadiene.

2. Mixtures of the polymers mentioned under (1), for example mixtures of polypropylene with polyethylene or with polyisobutylene.

10. Homo- and co-polymers of epoxides, such as polyethylene oxide, polypropylene oxide or their copolymers with bis-glycidyl ethers.

16. Polyamides and copolyamides which are derived from diamines and dicarboxylic acids and/or from aminocarboxylic acids or the corresponding lactams, such as polyamide 6, polyamide 6/6, polyamide 6/10, polyamide 11 and polyamide 12.

17. Polyesters which are derived from dicarboxylic acids and dialcohols and/or from hydroxycarboxylic acids or the corresponding lactones, such as polyethylene terephthalate, polybutylene terephthalate and poly-1,4-dimethylolcyclohexane terephthalate, and also block polyetheresters which are derived from polyethers with hydroxyl end groups and dicarboxylic acids.

18. Crosslinked polymers which are derived from aldehydes on the one hand and from phenols, ureas and melamines on the other hand, such as phenol-formaldehyde resins, urea-formaldehyde resins and melamine-formaldehyde resins.

19. Alkyd resins, such as glycerol/phthalic acid resins and their mixtures with melamine-formaldehyde resins.

20. Unsaturated polyester resins which are derived from copolyesters of saturated and unsaturated dicarboxylic acids with polyhydric alcohols and vinyl compounds as crosslinking agents, and also their halogen-containing modifications of low combustibility.

21. Crosslinked epoxide resins which are derived from polyepoxides, for example from bis-glycidyl ethers or from cycloaliphatic diepoxides.

22. Natural occurring polymers, such as cellulose and rubber, and also their polymer-homologously chemically modified derivatives, such as cellulose acetates, cellulose propionates and cellulose butyrates and the cellulose ethers, such as methylcellulose.

Amongst these polymers, groups 13, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 22 are of particular importance because they contain polymers which can react with the --CH.sub.2 OR.sup.2 groups of the stabilisers of the formulae I and II and which can be used for lacquers and coating materials. Acrylic resins which can be made crosslinkable by chemical modification are suitable for this purpose.

The reaction of the stabilisers with the polymers can be catalysed by the acid hardening catalysts known, for example, for the curing of melamine resins. Examples of such hardening catalysts are organic carboxylic acids, sulphonic acids or ammonium salts.

The stabilisers according to the invention are added to the polymers in an amount of 0.01 to 5% by weight, based on the polymer. Preferably 0.02 to 1% by weight is used. The stabiliser is added before shaping of the plastic. This addition can be effected by dry mixing of the pulverulent materials or by mixing with a solution or melt of the polymer. The stabiliser can also be mixed into prepolymers or a solution thereof. Such prepolymers are used in particular as surface-coating resins, as coating compositions or as compression moulding compositions, which convert to the crosslinked, high-molecular state only during or after shaping.

Simultaneously with the admixture of the stabiliser of the invention, it is also possible to mix in those other additives conventionally employed in the processing of plastics. Such additives are, for example, pigments, fillers, plasticisers, detergents, glass fibres, fluorescent whitening agents, other stabilisers, flame retardants or antistatic agents.

When concurrently employing other known stabilisers, synergistic effects can be obtained; a co-stabiliser effect of this type can result, for example, with light stabilisers based on benzotriazole or based on nickel compounds.

The plastics stabilised in this way can be used in very diverse forms, for example as films, fibres, tapes, compression moulding compositions, coating compositions or paints. Their use as binders for lacquers is of particular importance.
