Özet

In this study, hydrogels of poly(acrylamide-co-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) having different properties were prepared by a redox polymerization method. Poly(ethylene glycol), PEG 4000 was included in the polymerization recipe to increase the microporosity of the resultant polymeric structures. AAm/HEMA hydrogels with different properties were obtained by changing initial AAm/HEMA mole ratio, total monomer, PEG 4000 and crosslinker concentrations.
