Abstract: The influence of the synthesis conditions on the end use properties of SAPs was experimentally observed. Initial proportion crosslinker/acrylic acid and degree of neutralization are examples of parameters with strong influence in the performance of these materials. The kinetic model developed is able to capture the main features of SAP production. Ongoing research should allow the prediction of elastic properties of this class of materials.
