EVALUATION OF SWELLING PROPERTIES OF POLY (ACRYLIC ACID)/Zr-PILLARED K10 SUPERABSORBENT HYDROGEL

Keywords: hydrogel, superabsorbent composite, swelling, pH sensitivity, pillared clay

Abstract

Zr- Pillared K10 (Zr-K10) was synthesized by using Montmorillonite K10 clay. Zr- pillared K10 based superabsorbent (Zr-PILC-SA) was synthesized by using Zr- pillared- montmorillonite K10 via graft copolymerization reaction of acrylic acid (AA). After preparation of the films of hydrogels of Zr- pillared K10, swelling studies were performed in distilled water and different pH values at room temperature to investigate swelling behavior of pillared clay based superabsorbent films. It was also obtained that Zr-K10 based superabsorbent was pH dependent and showed a reversible swelling behavior. The swelling behavior of Zr-K10-SA was increasing by decreasing amount of Zr-K10 in the hydrogel. SEM, FTIR and XRD analysis were conducted for further characterization of the Zr-PILC-SA. FTIR analyses lead to ester formation between Zr-K10 and SA. XRD revealed the morphology of the superabsorbent was exfoliated and the layers of clay dispersed on the composite.
