Synthesis of high-performance superabsorbent glycerol acrylate-cross-linked poly (acrylic acid)

Synthesis of high-performance superabsorbent glycerol acrylate-cross-linked poly (acrylic acid) Glycerol acrylate (GA) is synthesised by an acryloylation reaction with acryloyl chloride.

Abstract

Glycerol acrylate (GA) is synthesised by an acryloylation reaction with acryloyl chloride. An ester was used as a cross-linking agent at varying proportions in the synthesis of poly acrylic acid (PAA). The amount of cross-linking density in the product (GA-PAA) and degree of neutralisation determine the absorbency of the polymer samples. A sample of GA-PAA containing 0.8 % GA was discovered to absorb 395 and 66 g/g of water and saline solution, respectively. Different solvent uptakes were tested with the sample showing varying capacity for different solvents. The temperature of the reaction was maintained at 60 °C and a reaction time of 2½ h. FTIR, TGA, SEM and XRD analyses were used to characterise the products.
