An efficient polymeric flocculant was synthesized by microwave assisted grafting of polyacrylamide to dextrin. By varying the reaction conditions, various grades of graft copolymers were synthesised to obtain the optimized one. Viscometry, elemental analysis, FTIR spectroscopy, (13)C NMR spectroscopy, determination of molecular weight and radius of gyration using SLS analysis, thermal analysis and SEM analysis were employed to confirm that polyacrylamide has been grafted onto the dextrin backbone. The flocculation efficiency of the grafted products in kaolin suspension was dependent on the molecular weight, radius of gyration and length of the grafted polyacrylamide chains. The flocculant obtained by microwave-assisted grafting method was superior to dextrin and polyacrylamide-based commercial flocculant (Rishfloc 226 LV) in flocculation tests.

An application that must be submitted to a regulatory agency (the FDA in the United States) before a drug can be studied in humans. This application includes results of previous experiments; how, where, and by whom the new studies will be conducted; the chemical structure of the compound; how it is thought to work in the body; any toxic effects found in animal studies; and how the compound is manufactured.
