Synthesis of casein-g-poly(methyl acrylate). II



The synthesis of casein-g-poly(methyl acrylate) was studied using the potassium peroxydisulfate–ascorbic acid redox system. The effect of synthetic variables has been investigated in the light of rates of conversion of monomer, graft copolymerization and homopolymerization, percent grafting, and grafting efficiency. The results are compared with the system initiated by pure potassium peroxydisulfate alone.
