13C NMR and Raman Studies of Fullerene-Based Poly (Acrylamides)
Abstract: A new classification of the different types of fullerene-containing polymers is presented according to their different properties and applications they exhibit in a variety of fields. 13C NMR and Raman studies of a series of polymeric samples of fullerene-grafted poly (acrylamide), which were prepared by systematic variation of concentration of fullerene and acrylamide, are described. 13C NMR spectral analysis of the polymeric samples showed a peak for fullerene at 143 δppm and for poly (acrylamide) between 170 and 180 δppm and Raman spectral analysis of the poly-meric samples gave the Raman band for fullerene between 1470 cm-1 and poly (acrylamide) at 2800 cm-1. The Tg value, obtained from DSC results, showed a high glass transition temperature at 100.94°C revealing the presence of fullerene in the polymeric matrix. TGA analysis shows that polymer is thermally stable up to 340°C.
