Özet

7A novel method for the preparation of hydrogels based on poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) is presented. A PEO macroinimer possessing both polymerizable and radical generation sites was used to obtain hydrogels having dangling PEO chains. It was shown that PEO macroinimer acts during photopolymerization, both as a monomer and a crosslinker and thus, leads to the formation of hydrogels of various swelling capacities and moduli of elasticity.
