- ... The graft copolymerization of styrene (ST), methyl methacrylate (MMA)/butyl acrylate (BA) with starch was carried chemically using ferrous ion-peroxide redox system. The grafting was performed at 60 °C and the monomer ratios of ST/MMA and ST/BA was varied with their % composition as 80/20, 50/50 and 20/80 parts by weight. The effect of initiator concentration, starch concentration and the monomer ...
