Effect of solution properties on the terpolymerization of 2-acrylamido-2- methylpropane sulfonic acid, acrylamide and acrylic acid
May 20-25, 2018
The water-soluble terpolymerization of 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropane sulfonic acid (AMPS), acrylamide (AAm) and acrylic acid (AAc) is an interesting and largely unstudied system. This new terpolymer has only recently appeared in the literature, with applications ranging from enhanced oil recovery  to controlled drug delivery . Typically, existing studies focus on the final properties of the material (swelling behavior, thermal and mechanical stability, etc.), but investigating the terpolymerization kinetics is equally important . The bulk polymer properties (and, by extension, properties relevant to the final application) depend on the terpolymer microstructure, therefore a clear understanding of the terpolymerization kinetics is invaluable.
