Synthesis of Poly (Acrylamide-Co-Acrylic acid) Hydrogel: Study of its Swelling Kinetics

Author : Zara Khan 1 Anushka Gupta 2 Dr. Roli Purwar 3

Date of Publication :30th September 2020

Abstract: Hydrogels are an important material for drug delivery, tissue engineering and numerous other applications. They constitute a 3D network with a hydrophilic part and can swell upto 20 times their dry weight. In this review, a hydrogel of Acrylamide and Acrylic acid is developed and a review of its swelling kinetics and swelling behaviour is discussed. The effect of pH on the swelling content and swelling ratio has also been studied.
