Radiation effects on some polymeric materials and their utilization for possible practical applications

Abstract

The present study divided into two parts. First part focused on the effect of the radiation on some naturally occurring polymers such as chitosan, sodium alginate and carboxymethylcellulose for controlling the degradation process of these polymers. These polymers of low molecular weights can be used as growth promoters for plants in the agriculture field. Second part focused on the radiation grafting of VAc/HEMA binary monomers onto PFA films using gamma irradiation was carried out to synthesize the graft copolymer membranes by direct method. The complexing ability with some selected transition metal ions such as Cu{sup 2+} and Cr{sup 3+} ions was investigated. These graft copolymer membranes can be used in the field of blood biocompatibility and in waste treatment of some heavy metals in the environmental industrial wastes.
