Abstract

Graft copolymer of Amylopectin and PMMA was synthesized by atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) method. The hydroxyl groups of amylopectin partially substituted with tertbutyl α-bromoisobutyrate to form tert-butyl α-bromoisobutyrate (TBBiB) groups. This compound is known as an efficient macro-initiator for ATRP process. This research, aimed to obtain a bio based polymer of Amylopectin, in which the amylopectin was used as macro-initiator in the ATRP of MMA. The experiment was carried out in the homogeneous system under temperature range of 40–70°C in DMSO solution using TEA as catalyst. The modified amylopectin-TBBiB then was grafted to methyl methacrylate trough ATRP. Product characterization indicates that the graft copolymer Amylopectin-g-PMMA is efficient and the obtained product owns well defined structures
