Paper Abstract

In this investigation, the effect of temperature on the rate of polymerization of 4-vinyl pyrrolidone (NVP) in the presence of poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) in a non-aqueous medium (DMF) was followed by Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. The results indicate that the rate of polymerization of NVP increased with increasing temperature. The effect was also investigated when NVP polymerized in the presence of temperature increases with the molecular weight of PAA.
