The study included the preparation of a polymer (alkyd resin) in two steps: the first is the preparation of monochlorides from the reaction of glycerine with castor oil in the presence of catalysts (Pb2O3, LiOH) and at a temperature (150 ˚C). A catalyst (CaCO3) and a range of temperatures (210, 200, 190, 180, 170) ˚C. The polymer was studied and identified by: infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1HNMR), and adhesiveness test. The molecular weight of the polymer was calculated by means of gel permeation chromatography (GPC) and calculated by means of viscometric viscosity through the graph of the polymer .
