Abstract

Kinetic behaviour of graft copolymerisation of glycidyl methacrylate onto nylon-6 fibres in solvent- and emulsion- media was investigated. The order for the dependence of the initial rate of grafting on the monomer concentration for solvent and emulsion grafting systems were found to be 1.65 and 1.57, respectively. The order of dependence of the initial rate of grafting on the absorbed dose was found to be 1.55 for solvent and 0.62 emulsion grafting systems. The results showed that grafting in both systems is controlled by diffusion mechanism and the degree of grafting can be effectively tuned by variation of the grafting parameters.
