A novel oil highly absorptive resin was prepared by a suspension polymerization using 1-butyl -3-(2-methacryl) ethyl imidazolium hexafluorophosphate (BMIm)PF 6 -, methyl methacrylate (MMA), and butylacrylate (BA) as monomers, azobisisobutyronitrile as initiator, N, N methylenebis (acryl amide) (MBA) as crosslinking agent and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) as dispersant and characterized by Fourier-transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), and scanning electron

The effects of different polymerization technological parameters, such as the mass ratios of the monomers, the addition amounts of the initiator, the cross-linker and the dispersant, the polymerization temperature and time, on the oil absorbency of the high oil absorption resin P (BMIm-MMA-BA) copolymer were examined in detail. Under the optimal condition, the oil absorbency was about 25.6 g/g for benzene, 22.6 g/g for xylene, 32.3g/g for chloroform, and 30 g/g for carbon tetrachloride, respectively. The kinetic investigation indicated the oil absorption obeyed the pseudo-first-order kinetic equation.
