Batch & Semi-Continuous Process Effect on Conversion of Methyl Methacrylate and Butyl Acrylate Copolymer By Suspension Copolymerization
Rakesh Vasava | Khushali Panchal
Abstract: Batch and Semi-continuous Suspension Copolymerization of Methyl Methacylate (MMA) with Butyl Acrylate (BA) was carried out in four neck three liter round bottom flat flanged glass reactor, in presence of Azobisisobutyronitrile as initiator, Potassium salt of MMA & Polyvinyl alcohol as stabilizer and Toluene as solvent. Experiments were carried out to study the effect of batch and semi-continuous process on conversion of copolymer at different reaction temperature. The value obtained of conversion was higher in semi-continuous process than batch process.
