Paper Title
Effect of Gamma Radiation on Graft Copolymerization of Peanut Shells Cellulose-Acrylamide Monomer

Many efforts have been made to isolate cellulose from various biomass sources. Peanut shell cellulose available as waste biomass was graft copolymerized with acrylamide monomer by simultaneous gamma irradiation. Recently, particular attention has been paid to producing pollutant adsorbents from cellulosic polymers due to their advantages of being abundant, rapidly renewable, and biodegradable in nature. Various concentrations of acrylamide and irradiation doses were applied for grafting. The structures and properties of the original cellulose and the prepared grafted celluloseacrylamide were characterized using different analytical tools such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and infrared spectrometer analysis (FTIR). The effect of radiation dose and monomer concentration on grafting efficiency and swelling degree were also studied. The grafting efficiency increased with the increasing in radiation dose which was found to be inversely proportional to swelling degree. The increasing in monomer concentration was directly proportional to the grafting efficiency, however, led to decreasing in swelling degree. Keywords - Peanut shell, Cellulose, Radiation Grafting, Fourier Transformed Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)
