Özet

A new, biodegradable surfactant with,high efficiency, N-stearoyl-di(sodium)glutamate (SDG), was used for miniemulsion polymerization of styrene and lauryl methacrylate (LMA). In the case of styrene, SDG produces latexes, at least as small as those produced by sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), over a range of concentrations. In the case of LMA, a combination of SDG with an appropriate costabilizer allows, one to obtain very small particles. With potassium persulfate (KPS) as initiator, the SDG/LMA system deviates significantly from the ideal miniemulsion, forming extremely small particles, which was speculatively attributed to a budding phenomenon.
