Polymerization of trimethylmethacryloyloxyethylammonium methyl sulfate in surfactant micellar solution of sodium alkyl sulfates and properties of the resultant polyelectrolytes

Abstract

Properties of poly[trimethylmethacryloyloxyethylammonium methyl sulfate] obtained by polymerization in surfactant micellar solution of sodium dodecyl-, decyl-, and octyl sulfates were studied by viscosimetry, static, and dynamic light scattering. It was shown that the introduction of a surfactant into the polymerization medium noticeably decreases the molecular weight and polydispersity of the formed polymers as a result of kinetic and structural template effects.
