Definition of comonomer in English:
One of the monomers that constitutes a copolymer.
- The surfaces of the different copolymers exhibited a different surface energy depending on the kind of the comonomer due to the different mass fraction of the maleic acid groups.
- Here, EDEA serves as a comonomer in the reaction.
- Different functionality may be introduced by using comonomers such as methacrylic acid (carboxylic acid groups) or hydroxy ethyl acrylate (hydroxyl groups).
