In situ study of aggregate sizes formed in chalcopyrite-quartz mixture using temperature-responsive polymers

Sung Ng, Wei; Connal, Luke; Forbes, Elizaveta; Mohanarangam, Krishna; Franks, G. V.


An interesting property of temperature-responsive polymers, such as poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM), is the ability to behave as flocculants above a lower critical solution temperature (LCST). This study examines the aggregation of a chalcopyrite-quartz mixture using a sulfide-selective temperature-responsive polymer, P(NIPAM-co-ethyl xanthate methacrylate (EXMA)) in a continuously-sheared suspension, relative to polyacrylamide (PAM). The investigation was carried out in situ using imaging...[Show more]
