    Abstract: Starch-g-polyacrylamide (St-g-PAM) and Starch-g- poly (N, N-dimethylacryl amide) (St-g-PDMA) were prepared by using acrylamide (AM) and N, N-dimethylacrylamide (DMA) by Ce (IV) ion induced aqueous polymerization technique. Various grafting parameters were optimized. The so prepared graft copolymers were characterized by fourier transform infrared s... Show More

    Abstract: New series of unsaturated copolyesters based on diarylidenecyclohexanone, were synthesized by the interfacial polycondensation polymerization technique. Aldol condensation reaction in acid media was used for preparation of three kinds of monomers and investigated by FT IR and 1H NMR. The copolymers have been synthetized by the polymerization of 2, ... Show More
