During this research, some chemical modifications have been done on linear polymethacrylic acid.
Obviously, chemically modified polymers [6, 7, 8, 9, 10] have new different chemical and physical properties, with expected new industrial application. This research describes the synthesis of new modified polymers. Through the condensation of methacrylic polymer with appropriate acid hydrazide in the presence of phosphorus oxychloride. Where prepared many modified polymers in this method.
The structures of these new modified polymers have been established on the basis of physical and spectral data (FT-IR and UV). Acid number, viscosity, molecular weight and swelling of the polymers were also determined.
