Abstract

A facile method for the characterization of hydrogel swelling is described which is based on the detn. of changes in the liq. phase concn. of an excluded tracer as gel swells in a const. vol. system. The utility of this approach is demonstrated with two responsive hydrogel prepns., one where swelling is influenced by system pH, the other by changes in specific solute concn. [on SciFinder (R)]
