ACOMP is used to monitor the synthesis of copolymeric polyelectrolytes: Unified understanding of copolyelectrolyte properties via monitoring of their synthesis, and subsequent endproduct characterization
Top: Raw ACOMP data for 10%/90% (g/g) VB/Aam copolymerization in 0.2mM NaCl. Bottom: Comonomer conversions fVB, fAam, and cumulative and instantaneous weight average mass, Mw, and Mw,inst, respectively.
Top: Composition drift of VB vs. fVB for several different starting ratios of VB/Aam. Bottom: Composition drift during polymerization, Zinst,VB vs. fVB, and evolution of conductivity s vs fVB. Inset shows average composition distribution.
Top: Total fractional composition drift and final Mw vs. Q9 molar %. Bottom: Mw for several Q9/Aam copolymerization reactions
