Abstract

In order to improve properties of Mulberry silk fibre, we have grafted binary monomer mixtures of butyl acrylate (BA) and ethyl acrylate (EA) with methyl methacrylate (MMA) in aqueous medium by using ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) as redox initiator. The binary vinyl monomers were grafted at optimum grafting conditions as reported earlier for MMA alone onto the same backbone. Graft copolymers are characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, Thermo-gravimetric analysis and Scanning electron microscopy studies. Moisture absorbance and chemical resistance properties of graft copolymers were studied in acidic and alkaline medium as a function of percent grafting.
