Studies on Methyl Methacrylate Grafted onto Chitosan by Ceric Ion Initiation

Abstract:

Article Preview

Chitosan-g-MMA was prepared with methyl methacrylate using ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) as an initiator under nitrogen atmosphere in aqueous solution and characterized by FTIR spectroscopy. The effects of concentration of CAN, the amount of MMA, reaction temperature on graft copolymerization were studied by determining the grafting percentage and grafting efficiency. The maximum grafting percentage and grafting efficiency obtained under these conditions were 790 % and 83 %, respectively.
