Abstract

Due to the importance of ion-polymer interactions in many technological applications, systematic measurements have been investigated on a variety of ionic poly(N,N-dimethylacrylamide) (PDMAAm) hydrogels and cryogels to determine the effect of mono- and multivalent ions on their dynamic properties. Using uniaxial compression, the influence of counter-ion valency on flexibility of charged polymer chains was investigated and the results were discussed as a function of ionic comonomer. To estimate the general swelling features, diffusion process and oscillating swelling-deswelling kinetics of ionic PDMAAm gels in salt solutions have been explained by model equations using early-time approximation as a function of characteristic response time.
