In order to develop new polymeric materials for environmental technologies based on extracted cellulose binary vinyl monomers like methacrylic acid (MA) and Acrylamide (AAm) were graft copolymerized using azobisisobutyronitrile (AIBN) as free radical initiator. Optimum grafting conditions for MA were evaluated and these conditions were used to co-graft acrylamide as comonomer. Graft copolymers were characterized by FTIR, SEM and swelling behaviour in water. Cellulose and graft copolymers were studied as supports for sorption of Cr+6 ions from water systems.
