The binary and ternary copolymers are synthesized by free-radical initiated binary copolymerization of citraconic anhydride (CA) with acrylamide (AAm) and terpolymerization of acrylamide (AAm) - citraconic anhydride (CA) - vinyl acetate (VA) monomer system. Co- and terpolymerization were carried out in the presence of benzoyl peroxide (BPO) as an initiator at 70degreesC in benzene under nitrogen atmosphere. Structure and monomer unit composition of the copolymers, obtained from a wide range of monomer feed were determined by elemental analysis. Structural peculiarities of synthesized PAAm, [poly (AAm-alt-CA)] and [poly(AAm-co-CA-co-VA)] were characterized by using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR), Uv-vis, H-1-NMR, X-ray diffraction (XRD), elemental analysis, analytical methods (titration methods) and viscometric measurements.
