Studies on Guargum–graft–acrylamide to explore type of graft in the polymer
Author(s): Aloke Chattopadhyay
Abstract: Guargum-graft-acrylamide (G-g-Am) is a water soluble polymer and has good industrial use. Aqueous solution of G-g-Am binds polyvalent metal ion using some polar groups when pH is raised, which may cause lack of structural regularity in polyvalent metal ion bound polymer which is understandable from TED pattern for cupric ion bound G-g-Am. Larger grafted chain of the polymer may cause entanglement in solution and may help in cross linking because of welding of polymeric chains by polyvalent metal ion which is understandable from this rheological study and TED study using G-g-Am and cupric ion bound G-g-Am.
