Synthesis of clay-based superabsorbent composite and its sorption capability.

A novel superabsorbent composite was synthesized by copolymerization reaction of partially neutralized acrylic acid (AA) on bentonite micropowder using N,N'-methylenebisacrylamide as a crosslinker and ammonium persulfate as an initiator in aqueous solution. The superabsorbent composite (SAC) was characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR… CONTINUE READING
