Graft copolymerization of poly(butyl methacrylate) onto wool in the presence of air and nitrogen atmosphere. II

Authors


Abstract

Poly(butyl methacrylate) (PBMA) was grafted onto wool in the presence of air and nitrogen atmosphere using potassium bromate and thioaceticacid (TAA) as redox initiating system, under different reaction conditions. The percentage grafting and percentage efficiency have been determined as a function of various reaction variables and the results have been compared. The graftcopolymer was characterized by scanning electron micrograph, thermogravimetry, and molecular weight.
