A Detailed Overview On Acrylamide Tertiary Butyl Sulfonic Acid
Acrylamide tertiary-butyl sulfonic acid is a special sulfonic acid acrylic monomer that is highly reactive. It is also known as AMPS (Acrylamide 2-methyl-1-propanesulfonic acid). This chemical is available as a powder, pellet or 50% aqueous solution as sodium salt
Properties Of ATBS
ATBS is a versatile substance that is hydrolytic is nature and possesses properties such as thermal stability, hydrophilicity, polarity and reactivity. It can be easily copolymerized with other chemicals like acrylonitrile, acrylic acid, acrylic esters and acrylamides as it is highly polymerizable. The aqueous solution of ATBS is acidic and soluble in Dimethyl, partly soluble in methanol and insoluble in acetone.
How Is ATBS Manufactured
ATBS is produced through the ritter reaction of acrylonitrile with isobutylene in the presence of sulfuric acid and water. This mixture is heated to obtain 2-acrylamido-2-methyl propane sulfonic acid.
Uses Of ATBS
The main use of ATBS is in the oil recovery industry where it is used in its highest purity grade. Other uses of ATBS are in water treatment, acrylic fibre, oilfield, latex, adhesive, emulsion coatings, personal care, medical and construction applications.
Due to their exceptional thermal and hydrolytic stability, ATBS granules are used in oilfield applications where hostile environments demand high-performance products. In drilling operations, ATBS granules are also utilized as scale inhibitors, friction reducers, non-retarding fluid control agent and water-control.
ATBS is used in adhesives as it greatly improves their thermal-mechanical properties and adhesive strength.
Polymers containing 15214-89-8 are used in diapers, lotions and personal care products due to its water retention capacity, electrical conductivity, slipperiness and lubricity. Being super absorbent, they are also used in the agricultural sector as a water retention agent.
Polymers containing ATBS are known to improve dispersibility and lubricity. That is why, they are used as flow control auxiliaries in building materials
Polymers containing 2-Acrylamido 2-methylpropanessulfonic Acid improve the characteristics of hydrophilicity, dispersibility, lubricity and enhance the effectiveness of Detergents and Cleaners
