The study also found that manufacturers are continuing to shift away from traditional dispersant chemicals to acrylate homopolymers, copolymers and terpolymers, which lend unique dispersant properties to their specific technologies.
These terpolymers [1,3] are prepared like butyl rubber with the major exception that a third monomer, bifunctional divinylbenzene, DVB, is added during the polymerization in the reactor.
Polymers make up a significant group in material science, with probably the highest level of growth not only in types of material (with the huge variety of polymers, co-polymers, terpolymers, etc available), but also in types of applications, ranging from cheap, mass-produced items to high-end products made from engineering polymers.
Most AEM polymers are terpolymers of ethylene, methyl acrylate and an acidic cure site monomer which allows for curing with a diamine.
A good choice to overcome these questions is using porous terpolymers as the supports instead of inorganic and organic materials.
