In this study, a stable antibacterial poly(styrene-co-butyl acrylate) (poly(St-co-BA)) nano-latex was prepared in the presence of a dioctyldimethylammonium chloride (D821)-CTAB mixed surfactant and a novel bis-unsaturated Gemini comonomer (i.e., α,ω-hexanediyl bis(dimethyl methacrylamidopropyl ammonium bromide) (GMAP-6-MAP)) using a feasible and mild… CONTINUE READING
