Synthetic Random and Graft Copolymers for Utilization in Enhanced Oil Recovery—Synthesis and Rheology
Polyelectrolyte and non-polyelectrolyte acrylamide random copolymers and graft copolymers of dextran with acrylamide were synthesized to evaluate the effects of polymer composition and structure on viscosity modification and solution behavior in water and brine. Polymer solution rheological behavior and precipitation properties were measured.
