2-Bromoethyloxirane (2 b), 3-bromopropyloxirane (2 c) and 4-bromobutyloxirane (2 d) were prepared by epoxidation of the corresponding bromoalkenes. Treatment of the oxiranes with a triethylaluminium/acetylacetone/water mixture afforded the polyethers 3 b - d in good yield as tacky, white elastomers. Substitution of bromide by benzoate ion established essentially equal reactivities for the three polymers; each was substantially more reactive than any of the halogenated polyether elastomers available heretofore.
