ABSTRACT The surface properties of water soluble copolymers vinyl ethers of monoethanolamine and ethylene glycol with sodium 2-acrylamido-2-methyl-propanesulfonate were investigated by studying adsorption at the aqueous solution – air interface. It is found that copolymers have considerably higher surface activity in comparison with poly- sodium 2-acrylamido-2-methyl-propanesulfonate.
