Synthesis and characterization of hydrogel nanocomposite primarily based on practical CNTs–copper sulfate-polymethyl methacrylate: Fullerenes, Nanotubes and Carbon Nanostructures: Vol 0, No 0


This work stories the preparation of hydrogel nanocomposites primarily based on copolymerization of methyl methacrylate utilizing ammonium persulfate because the initiator, methylene bisacrylic amide because the crosslinker & varied quantities of functionalized CNT for inter-hydrogel binding. Functionalization of CNTs was carried out by its oxidation at room temperature utilizing nitric acid because the oxidizing agent, then acylation of carboxylic acid agent in CNTs by SOCl2 addition and at last esterification of CNTs by the addition of ethylene glycol to acylchloride. The swelling charge of the obtained composites was checked in deionized water the place the composite containing extra CNTs p.c within the hydrogel construction confirmed the next swelling charge (>50%).Then, for improve of chemical exercise, the obtained hydrogel nanocomposites have been impregnated by answer of CuSO4 with completely different concentrations and the resultant hydrogels because the exercise filler have been analyzed by FTIR, XRD and SEM.
