Article Preview

Self-oscillating gel is designed by copolymerizing the catalyst for the Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction with thermosensitive polymer. The cylindrical-shaped specimens of NIPAAm-co-(Ru(bpy)3 gel were prepared by copolymerizing (Ru(bpy)3) monomer as catalyst with NIPAAm as thermosensitive polymer. Swelling behavior during self-oscillating of gel by BZ reaction was observed using CCD camera and the force due to this reaction was evaluated using semiconductor gauge. Self-oscillating swelling-deswelling behavior in samples with different swelling ratio was evaluated by this apparatus, and mechanical parameters such as Young’s modulus, stress amplitude and oscillating period were quantitatively estimated.
