What Is PolyDadMac?
Polydiallyldimethylammonium chloride (polyDADMAC, also known as polyDDA) is a homopolymer of diallyldimethylammonium chloride (DADMAC). PolyDADMAC has a molecular weight of hundreds of thousands to a million grams per mole, depending on the product. PolyDADMAC is usually given as a liquid concentrate with a solids content ranging from 10% to 50%. It's a polymer with cationic properties. Because of its charge density, it is prone to flocculation. It is most commonly obtained as a hydrate.
PolyDadMac was notable because it was water soluble, unlike other synthetic polymers made at the time by polymerization of monomers with various vinyl functionalities. In 2002, NMR research were performed

The Omicron virus is predicted to be a threat to the global chemical industry. First reported on 24 November 2021, it is expected that the emergence of this new variant will affect the chemical industry by disrupting the supply chain.
Ships Loading and Unloading Cargo in a Port
With the rise of the coronavirus, lockdowns, quarantine policies, and strict limitations on travel and cargo were implemented in various countries, such as China and the United States. These policies also caused human resources shortages due to work limitations or massive layoffs of personnel, such as port workers, truck drivers, and factory workers. According to CNBC, countries like China are expected to intensify these policies and add more strict checks on cargo ships entering their countries. Not only will this disrupt the shipping

PVA 1799, one of the grades of PVA
What is PVA?
PVA stands for polyvinyl alcohol, which is a polymeric compound that is soluble in water. PVA was first developed in Germany by the Nobel Laureate Dr. Hermann Staudinger, and further developed in Japan. It's usually found in bead or solution form on the market, and industrially it can be made through the hydrolysis of polyvinyl acetate or any other vinyl ester derived polymer belonging to the formate or chloroacetate group.
Different Grades of PVA
There are different grades of PVA sold on the market. This could occur due to different levels of polymerization during the making process. Although it seems that these different types are the same chemical, they are suitable for different purposes. Here we list some of the PVA sold on the market and their specifications:
