Ceric ion initiated graft copolymerization of Insoluble potato starch with acrylic acid
The graft copolymers of insoluble granular potato starch with acrylic acid (AA) were synthesized using ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) for initiation. The effect of concentration of initiator, concentration of monomer, polymerization time, reaction temperature, material-to-liquor ratio and presence of alcohol in the reaction medium were studied and optimum conditions are defined. The formation of graft copolymers was confirmed using the method of gravimetric estimation. The grafting parameters calculated are reported.
