Nanotechnology Helps Production of Super Adsorbent Polymers

Tehran, Iran | Posted on August 21st, 2014

The polymers are produced through an economic and cost-effective method. The polymers can be used in various industries, including medical and hygienic, agriculture and advanced textile technologies.

Polyamide is one of the most applicable polymers, which has many applications in various issues. Specific chemical structure of this polymer causes colorants and limits for selecting the appropriate group of pigments and the method of painting. If the wrong colorant is picked, some problems occur in the stabilization of the color, specially in the range of dark and black colors. These problems encourage producers to produce raw colorful materials, melt-spinning and fabrication of colorful polymers, which usually require complicated facilities and high cost. The researchers have tried in this research to overcome this problem and improve color properties of polyamide.

Results of the research enable obtaining of super adsorbent polyamide polymer with low cost by using a new method. According to the present report, the color properties of some of modified polyamide samples have increased up to 30 times. The polymers can be used in various industries, including medical and hygienic, agriculture and textile, as super adsorbent polymers.

The adsorption of colorant in modified samples has increased significantly in this research to the extent that the value has increased more than 30 times in the sample in which second generation dendrimer was used as the moderator. In addition, the washing stability of the modified sample remained constant, and its optical stability increased a bit.

Results of the research have been published Dyes and Pigments, vol. 111, issue 1, 2014, pp. 30-38.
