Water soluble polymers are the polymers that are capable of being dissolved in water. These are obtained from natural, synthetic and semi-synthetic sources. Natural water soluble polymers are plant and animal sources whereas synthetic water soluble polymers are derived by chemical modification of natural polymers. Semi synthetic water soluble polymers are obtained from the combination of natural and synthetic water soluble polymers. Water soluble polymers are non-inflammable, mild odour and less hazardous to environment than other polymers. Polyacrylamides and polyamines acts as coagulants and flocculants for water treatment. The increasing demand for water & wastewater treatment and stringent government regulations are the major factors for the increase in demand.
