Graft copolymer of xanthan gum (XG) and ethylacrylate (EA) has been synthesized by free radical polymerization using potassium peroxydisulfate (KPS) as an initiator in an air atmosphere. The grafting parameters, i.e. grafting ratio and efficiency decrease with increase in concentration of xanthan gum from 0.050 mg/25 mL to 0.350 mg/25 mL, but these grafting parameters increase with increase in concentration of ethylacrylate from 9×10(-2) to 17×10(-2) ML(-1), and KPS from 15×10(-3) to 35×10(-3… CONTINUE READING
