"The industrial growth of aliphatic chemistry, which has constituted one of the outstanding advances of recent years, has been almost entirely in the field of hydrocarbons and their simpler chlorine and oxygen derivatives… Representative of the aliphatic amines, possibly only the methyl, amyl and ethanol amines may be said to have been commercially available. And yet the field of aliphatic nitrogen chemistry possesses the greatest variety of known aliphatic compounds; there are at least several nitrogen analogs of each oxygen compound, often more stable, more definitely characterized, and more reactive chemically." Relatively few aminoalcohols, especially polyhydroxyaminoalcohols have been prepared. Due to their multiplicity of functional groups they form an interesting group of compounds. It is therefore the purpose of this study to prepare some polyhydroxyaminoalcohols and to give some of their applications.
