Copolymerization of N–Tert–Butylacrylamide (Ntb) And 2–Methyl–N–1, 3–Thiazole–2–Acrylamide (Tma):Synthesis, Characterization And Antimicrobial Activity

S. Bharathi, P. Pazhanisamy

Abstract :

 The Acrylamide based monomer, N–tert–butylacrylamide (NTB) and 2–methyl–N–1, 3–thiazole–2–acrylamide (TMA) was synthesized and characterized by NMR spectroscopy. Copolymerization of NTB with TMA in different feed ratio was carried out in 1, 4–dioxane at 60±1oC using AIBN as initiator. The resulting copolymers were characterized by 1H–NMR spectroscopy and the copolymer compositions were determined by 1H–NMR data. Fineman–Ross, Kelen–Tudos and extended Kelen–Tudos methods were employed to calculate the reactivity ratios of monomers. Mean sequence lengths of copolymers were estimated from r1 and r2 values. Thermogravimetric analysis of the polymers reveals that the thermal stability of the copolymers increases with increases in the mole fraction of NTB in the copolymers. The obtained copolymers were tested for their antimicrobial activity against selected micro–organisms.
