The "anionic" part of its name refers to the fact that it carries a negative charge on its molecular structure.
In 2008, an estimated 750,000,000 kg were produced, mainly for water treatment and the paper and mineral industries.
Because of the difference in production methods, the products can be white powder, translucent beads and flaky like.
Anionic Polyacrylamides density is 1.302 g/cm3 (23 °C) with glass transition temperature being 153 °C and softening temperature being 210 °C.
Anionic Polyacrylamide has good thermal stability and is soluble in water; its aqueous solution is clear and transparent with its viscosity increasing with increased molecular weight of the polymer, and also having a logarithmic relationship with the change in concentration of the polymer.

Anionic Polyacrylamide is a polyolefin.
Anionic Polyacrylamide can be viewed as polyethylene with amide substituents on alternating carbons.
Unlike various nylons, Anionic Polyacrylamide is not a polyamide because the amide groups are not in the polymer backbone.
Owing to the presence of the amide (CONH2) groups, alternating carbon atoms in the backbone are stereogenic (colloquially: chiral).
For this reason, Anionic Polyacrylamide exists in atactic, syndiotactic, and isotactic forms, although this aspect is rarely discussed.
The Anionic Polyacrylamide is initiated with radicals and is assumed to be stereorandom.
However, different molecular mass ranges are used for these two roles.

Anionic acrylamide copolymer retention aids typically have molecular masses in the range of 5 to 20 million grams per mole.
The strength agents typically have molecular masses in the hundreds of thousands.
Another difference is in the form delivered to the mill.
Though anionic retention aids can be delivered as solid beads or in solution, it is more popular to get them as water-in-oil emulsions.
Before such emulsion products can be used they have to be “inverted” with a dilution of about 100-to-1 with a lot of agitation.
Further time (at least half an hour) is needed for the individual molecules to uncoil themselves and achieve their full potential as retention aids.

For liquid Anionic Polyacrylamide, when its concentration is greater than 17%, it can be stored for more than one year with no significant change in the solution viscosity.
In the pH range of 3 to 9, it can maintain a good degree of stability; at high pH, the viscosity will be increased gradually.
Anionic Polyacrylamide has miscibility with most water-soluble natural or synthetic resins, latex systems, and most of the salts.

Anionic polyacrylamide (APAM) is a kind of polyacrylamide (PAM) and shows electronegative which contains functional groups of sulfonic acid, phosphoric acid or carboxylic acid.
Anionic polyacrylamide is the generic name for a group of very high molecular weight macromolecules produced by the free-radical polymerization of acrylamide and an anionically charged comonomer, mainly the sodium salt of acrylic acid, sodium acrylate.
The combination of molecular weight and ionic charge results in extremely viscous aqueous solutions, one of the main properties of these polymers.
Both the charge density (ionicity), and the molecular weight can be varied. By varying the acrylamide/anionic monomer ratio, a charge density from 0 to 100% along the polymer chain can be obtained.
The molecular weight is determined by the type and concentration of the reaction initiator and the reaction parameters.
Anionic polyacrylamide has no systemic toxicity to aquatic organisms or micro-organisms.
The polymer is much too large to be absorbed into tissues and cells.
The functional anionic groups do not interfere with the functioning of fish gills or daphnia respirators.

The preparation of the test solutions at such concentrations requires high-energy stirring for long periods of time, sometimes several hours.
Therfore, Anionic Polyacrylamide can be concluded that these harmful concentrations will not exist in the natural environment.

Preparation: the polymerization of acrylamide aqueous solution is a common method for preparing polyacrylamide.
According to the trigger mode, there are different methods such as thermal initiator and oxidation-reduction induction.
Polymer prepared by persulfate thermal initiating has relative small molecular weight at about 20 to about 1,000,000. On the other hand, polymer produced with oxidation-reduction method usually have relative high molecular weight polymer, up to about 300 to 400 million.
For the application of retention and drainage aid in paper industry, it is better to apply polyacrylamide with higher molecular weight.
The following is oxidation-reduction triggering polymerization.

Anionic polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is an important means of DNA, RNA and protein analysis and separation.
Ions and charged molecules mobilize in electric field with the mobility rate being related to their molecular size and shape, the strength of the molecular charge, the current strength and the resistance of the media to the current and therefore forming separate bands.
Anionic polyacrylamide can separated the substances according to their differences on charge, molecular size and the shape, thus having a molecular sieve effect as well as an electrostatic effect; it has a higher resolution than agarose gel electrophoresis and is suitable for the isolation of DNA oligonucleotides and its sequence analysis.
Compared with agarose gel electrophoresis, it has the following advantages: (1)A stronger distinguishing ability, though the maximum fragment is 500 times as long as the smallest fragment length, they can still be well separated; (2) Capable of loading a higher amount of DNA than agarose gel; (3)The purity recovered from PAGE recovered is high which is suitable for demanding experiments.
Anionic polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (gel electrophoresis with vertical plate): it can isolate and analyze several different RNA samples or large doses of RNA samples simultaneously.
The basic principle of SDS denaturing in-continuous polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is based on differences in the molecular weight of the protein, SDS is an anionic surfactant, capable of binding with the hydrophobic portion of the protein thus making the protein bring a large number of anions SDS.
Protein molecules thus bring a lot of negative charge which is far beyond its original charge.
Thus the difference between the charges on different proteins has no significant effect.
SDS can also make protein structure become loose with converged shape; the mobility rate of SDS-protein complex is only related to molecular weight.
PAGE not only has molecular sieve effect but also has concentrated effect.
Owing to the effect of the discontinuous pH gradient, the sample is compressed into a narrow band, thereby improving the separation efficiency.
