Water insoluble hydrogels with loosely crosslinked three dimensional network structure, absorbing more than 200g of water per gram of the xerogel (dry polymer).The majority of the superabsorbents manufactured are synthetic polymers (essentially acrylics) due to their superior price‐to efficiency balance. In view of environment concerns, all over the world the importance of replacing the synthetics by “greener” options is being felt. One of most popular approaches explored for the purpose is introduction of polysaccharides/ carbohydrates through a suitable mechanism.
ENVIRONMENTAL SAFETY ASPECTS:
Major issue : Inherent toxicity of the unreacted monomer acrylamide, acrylic acid, acrylate etc. present in the finished products.
Synthetic absorbent materials slowly degrade to toxic material and get leached into ground water and have adver...
