Abstract

This article describes preparation of polysaccharide-polymethacrylate hybrid materials by means of free-radical polymerization of a cationic methacrylate monomer in the presence of anionic polysaccharides. In particular, synthesis of the hybrid material composed of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and a cationic polymethacrylate, i.e. poly(2-aminoethyl methacrylate) is disclosed. The formation of the materials was achieved by radical polymerization of 2-aminoethyl methacrylate hydrochloride (AEMA-HCI) in aqueous solution of CMC. The insoluble material was formed and the structure was determined by the IR spectra and elemental analysis to be composed of CMC and polymethacrylate. Thermal analyses such as thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) were performed to confirm the network structure of the material. The dehydrative amidation occurred by heating the material at 200°C, giving rise to the new hybrid material hybridized by the amide linkages.
