Abstract:

The controlled graft modification of Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles has been achieved by reversible addition fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization under ultrasonic irradiation. The nanoparticles of Fe3O4 were first prepared by a chemical co-precipitation method, and reacted with 3-aminopropyltriethoxylsilane (KH550), and subsequently with S-1-dodecyl-S′-(α,α′-dimethyl-α″-acetic acid) trithiocarbonate (DDACT) to serve as RAFT agent. The graft polymerization of methyl acrylate was carried out under ultrasonic irradiation (28 KHz, 60 W). The first-order kinetics and the polymers with narrow molecular weight distributions suggested the polymerization proceeded via RAFT process. The resultant products were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FT-IR), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), high performance particle sizer (HPPS) and Gouy magnetic balance. The resultant products with good paramagnetism could be well modified with the "well-defined" polymers via RAFT polymerization under ultrasonic irradiation, thereby providing a new method to well modify magnetic nanoparticles.
