Abstract:

Article Preview

A kind of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) gel was synthesized by radical polymerization of N-isopropylacrylamide monomer in the present of crosslinker N,N-Methylenebisacylamide using short reaction time. This kind of PNIPAM gel exhibits higher swelling ratio at low temperature and much faster deswelling rate than conventional gel, which could be attributed to the presence of loops, dangling chains and other incomplete structure in the gel caused by short reaction time.
