Plantoils such as linseed oil and corn oil have been used for the preparation of Interpenetrating polymer networks for special applications. Epoxidation of linseedoil (ELO) and corn oil (ECO) had been carried out by per acetic acid method. Further an Acrylated epoxy resin of Linseed oil (AELO) and Corn oil (AECO) were synthesised from (ELO) and (ECO) .The (AELO) and (AECO) were characterised by physicochemical properties. The IPNs of biopolymers were prepared by using comonomers like Vinylacetate (VA) , Vinyl pyrrolidone (VP), Methyl meth acrylate(MMA) and Methyl acrylate (MA).These biopolymers were characterised by tensile strength, crosslinked density,FT-IR spectral analysis and Biodegradability. The outcome of the studies revealed that the newly prepared IPNs of polymers are potential biodegradable material for various consumer applications like package materials, sporting goods and floor mats.
