Grafting of Methacrylonitrile and Ethyl Methacrylate onto Jute Fibre: Physico-chemical Characteristics of Grafted Jute

Abstract:
Modification of bleached jute fibre was done by graft co-polymerization with vinyl monomers e.g. methacrylonitrile and ethyl methacrylate, in aqueous medium using H2O2-Na2S2O3 as redox initiators. To make the process efficient, the optimized polymerization condition was established. The maximum percent grafting and grafting efficiency obtained at optimum grafting condition were 11.3 and 20.4% for MAN, respectively and that of 17.6 and 27.5% for EMA. Modification of bleached jute fibre with MAN and EMA reduced the loss in breaking strength and the yellowing on exposure to sunlight in air.
