    A series of random poly(styrene-co-methacrylamide) (PS-co-PMAAM) copolymers were prepared by free radical polymerization of styrene and methacrylamide monomers. The PS and PMAAM units of the copolymer do not have any specific interaction based on the Kwei equation and the infrared spectroscopy...
