To quantitatively describe the change of crystal structure of PSA fibers after graft, the contribution from amorphous polyacrylic acid was subtracted, and the crystallinity of AA-grafted PSA fibers was calculated based on the peak area of crystal peaks and amorphous phase of PSA fibers, as shown in Fig.
Polyacrylic acid derivatives were prepared successfully according to Scheme-1 and characterized with different techniques.

Surface morphology and architecture are shown in TEM and SEM images in Figure 3, which reveal that magnetic nanoparticles functionalized with polyacrylic acid (P-MNPs) are spherical before (Figure 3(a)) and after loading with Cu (Figure 3(d)).
The weight loss was observed because the inhibitor 2-MBT undergoes oxidative degradation which starts to degrade above 200[degrees]C; in addition, polyacrylic acid and poly (pyrrole) start to degrade above 300[degrees]C.
