Studies on barium ion bound guar sample: Preparation and characterization
Author(s): Aloke Chattopadhyay
Abstract: Guargum is a water soluble natural polymer and is used in industries like paper industry. When guargum is grafted with polyacrylamide side chains, its biodegradation resistance increases. Guargum – graft – acrylamide binds Y3+, Ba2+ and Cu2+ by – COOH groups of side chains at higher pH. Study of binding Y3+ and Cu2+ by guargum itself has been reported earlier. In this work, study of binding Ba2+ by guar sample has been done by SEM, EDS and IR spectra. These techniques support association of polymeric chains of guar sample by Ba2+ ions at high pH and also binding of Ba2+ ions by guar sample by the use of some – C-OH groups of guar sample.
