Polyacrylamide in Iran (PAM) – anionic, cationic, and nonionic

CAS Number: 9003-05-8
PubChem: 6579 (monomer)
Iran HS Code: 39069000

The word polyacrylamide is a generic chemistry term, referring to a broad class of compounds.

Polyacrylamide is a polymer formed from acrylamide (a compound with the molecular formula C3H5NO) subunits. The polymer structure of PAM is (-CH2CHCONH2-).

There are hundreds of specific polyacrylamide formulations. The polymer can be synthesized as a simple linear-chain structure or cross-linked, typically using N,N’-methylenebisacrylamide. In the cross-linked form, the possibility of the monomer being present is reduced even further. Cross-linked polymers are water absorbent but are not water soluble. Water-soluble polyacrylamide (PAM) have little if any cross-linking and the molecules, when dissolved in water, are nominally “”linear”.

Polyacrylamide (PAM) is most often used to increase the viscosity of water (creating a thicker solution) or to encourage flocculation of particles present in water.

Polyacrylamide can be supplied in a powder or liquid form, with the liquid form being subcategorized as solution and emulsion polymer.

PAM can be used in municipal wastewater treatment. In industrial wastewater treatment, the polymers and coagulants are used extensively for a wide variety of industrial processes involving paper, petrochemical, electroplating, textiles, oilfield chemical, food, pharmaceutical, leather, breweries wineries, and slaughterhouses.

PAM is a synthetic chemical that can be tailored to fit a broad range of applications.
