The novel graft copolymers are synthesized successfully by free-radical polymerization. Polymerization conditions such as types of initiators, concentrations of reactants, reaction times and temperatures, are optimized to get the graft copolymers with high grafting efficiency. The solution behaviors of single surfactant system, which only contain these grafted copolymeric surfactant, and binary surfactant systems, which contain normal surfactant and these grafted surfactant, are investigated systematically and thoroughly.
