Abstract

The crosslinked polystyrene-polycaprolactone, PS-PCL-, block copolymers were prepared by the copolymerization of styrene and poly(caprolacton dimethylmethacrylate) (PCL-DM). The molecular weights of polycaprolactone, PCL, PCL-DM were 1250 and 2000. The swelling in H2O or CHCl3 of the sulfonate and unsulfonated block copolymers were determined under comparable conditions and investigated. The capacities of the obtained ion exchange resins were 1.31 and 1.10 meq/g.
