Abstract: Copolymers of N-isopropylacrylamide (IPAM) and acrylamide (AM) have been synthesized by free radical polymerization in deionized water using potassium persulfate as the initiator. Copolymer compositions were obtained by elemental analysis and 13C NMR An rl r, value of 0.99 indicates ideal copolymerization with random incorporation of the comonomers in the copolymers. Weight average molecular weights, second virial coefficients, diffusion coefficients, and average diameters were obtatned via classical and quas…
