    Abstract: The present paper reports the modification of guar gum through the grafting of 2-acrylamidoglycolic acid by free radical polymerization using an efficient potassium peroxydiphosphate/thioacetamide redox system in nitrogen atmosphere. The reaction conditions for maximum grafting have been optimized by varying the reaction variables including the con... Show More
