Study on Viscosity of Poly(Acrylic Acid-Co-Acrylamide) Concentrated Solution with Different Potential Crosslinking Agent
Poly(acrylic acid-co-acrylamide) has large number of ionic and nonionic hydrophilic groups, such making the rheological behavior of its solution complex. In this research, four different potential crosslinking agents which contains activating hydroxyl group and unsaturated bond were introduced into the poly(acrylic acid-co-acrylamide) polymer during aqueous solution radical polymerizations. Rotary viscosimeter was chosen to characterize the apparent viscosity of poly(acrylic acid-co-acrylamide) concentrated solutions. Temperature, concentration of the aqueous concentrated solutions and proportion of potential crosslinking agent are the most important factors. Results shows that the apparent viscosity of PAAM concentrated solution decreases with the increase of temperature, the decreases of concentration of the aqueous concentrated solutions and the proportion of potential crosslinking agent.
