  • Publication number: 20120035294
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for preparing super absorbent polymers, and more specifically to a process for preparing super absorbent polymers comprising the steps of: forming a monomer composition comprising water-soluble, ethylenic unsaturated monomers and non-reactive fine particles having a diameter of 20 nm to 1 mm; and subjecting the monomer composition to a thermal polymerization or a UV-induced polymerization. In the present invention, introducing fine particles into the monomer composition can provide paths for effectively discharging moisture or heat from the super absorbent polymers during or after a polymerization, thereby making it possible to obtain high quality super absorbent polymers showing a low water content and a low temperature and thus having excellent properties and enabling one to expect an energy-saving effect in a drying process.
