Geographically, the global acrylamide market is broadly segmented on the basis of seven regions, namely North America, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, Japan, Asia Pacific, Western Europe and Eastern Europe.
Some of the major players identified in the global acrylamide market are:
European rules limit the amount of acrylamide allowed in food packaging to no more than 10 parts per billion (ppb).
Kellogg's Special K was found to have up to 300ppb of acrylamide and Kellogg's Rice Crispies between 110 and 150ppb.
For sand mine operators, the selection and proper use of PAM to minimize residual amounts of monomer acrylamide that are present can impact two of a mining facility's largest process flows.
The Center for Disease Control, Environmental Protection Agency and Pollution Control Agency have all conducted studies showing that, upon exposure to the environment, acrylamide and PAM biodegrade or hydrolyze within hours to days (depending upon microbial concentrations, pH levels and temperature) and are gone before reaching most water sources.
Common cationic polyacrylamides produced industrially Include copolymers of acrylamide (1) with AETAC (6), MAETAC (7), MAPTAC (9), or DADMAC (10) (Figures 7 and 2).
In general, cationic methacrylates and methacrylamides are more reactive than their acrylate and acrylamide counterparts.
