Synthesis of Polyorthanisidine by Interfacial Polymerization

Shashank Mhaske, Aarti More



Polyorthoanisidine has been synthesized by interfacial polymerization method. O-anisidine has been used as a monomer, hydrochloric acid is used as a dopant and ammonium persulphate as an oxidiser. The solvent used for the study is chloroform, isopropanol, hexane and xylene. The polyorthoanisidine obtained is characterized for particle size analysis. It is observed as with xylene as a solvent the least particle size has been observed with Z average value of 467 nm and the particle size distribution is observed as 0.69. The highest particle size has been observed with chloroform and widest particle size distribution has been observed with isopropanol. Hence the product obtains from xylene as a solvent was characterized further by FTIR analysis and UV visible analysis for structural confirmation of POA. XRD analysis has shown that all samples show similar crystalline nature.
