    • Abstract


      Benzoylated tannin prepared by benzoylation of cashewnut husk tannin, was treated with hexame-thylenediisocyanate in the presence of 1,4-butanediol as an extender to prepare thermosetting polyurethane. The sample was characterized using FT–IR and 13C NMR spectra. Thermal, morphological, physico-chemical and electrical properties were also investigated. Polyurethane obtained was sensitive to moisture but had very good solvent resistance. Results show that 𝑇g of the sample is 260 °C and thermal decomposition begins at 280 °C. The dielectric constant varies randomly with temperature. The conductivity of the sample was found to increase with increase in temperature but shows random variation at 90 and 150 °C
