Preparation of Superabsorbent Polymers by the Inverse Suspension Method
AbstractThe superabsorbent polymers based on acrylic acid have been prepared in the presence of ammonium persulfate (APS) as initiator and N,N-methylene- bis- acrylamide (MBA) as crosslinking agent. The suspension polymerisation occurred in aqueous drops dispersed in toluene and stabilised by sorbitan monooleate. Some effects on the swelling degree and size particles such as concentrations of MBA and initiator, neutralization degree (Dn) were studied. Swelling degree 405g/g, reach maximum at 85C and 0.09% crosslinking agent, 1.0% initiator, 75% degree of neutralization, 350 rpm agitation speed was observed.
