Abstract

In this study, cationic semi-IPN films (CS-DA-DAD) containing chitosan (CS), N,N-dimethylacrylamide (DA), and diallyldimethylammonium chloride (DAD) were prepared for the first time at initial molar concentrations of 0.06, 0.12, 0.18, and 0.21 M, using ammonium persulphate (APS) as initiator, and N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine (TEMED) as accelerator. For comparison, CS and CS-DA films were also prepared.
