SADICOFF, Bianca L.; BRANDAO, Edimir M.; LUCAS, Elizabete F.  e  AMORIM, Marcia C. V.. Micellar copolymerization of poly(acrylamide-g-propylene oxide): rheologic evaluation and solution characterization. Polímeros [online]. 2001, vol.11, n.2, pp.41-50. ISSN 1678-5169.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-14282001000200005.

Graft copolymers of polyacrylamide and poly(propylene oxide) (PPO) were synthesized by a micellar copolymerization technique. The rheological properties of the copolymers solutions were evaluated and compared with literature data for solutions of the same copolymers, synthesized by solution polymerization. The effect of hydrophobe content, salt addition and surfactant addition on the rheological properties were also investigated. Increasing hydrophobe content resulted in higher solution viscosities in the semi-dilute regime. Upon addition of salts, the hydrophobic groups associated to minimize their exposure to water. In the semi-dilute region, higher contents of surfactant added resulted in lower reduced viscosities of the polymer solutions. The copolymers were qualitatively characterized by infra-red spectrometry (IR).

Palavras-chave : Polyacrylamide; poly(propylene oxide); micellar copolymerization; rheology.
