    Temperature sensitive copolymers were prepared by free radical crosslinking copolymerization in aqueous solution with different molar percentage of N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPA) and acrylamide (AAm) monomers. NN'-methylenebis (acrylamide) (BIS) and ammonium persulfate (APS) were used as a crosslinker and an initiator respectively. The steady-state fluorescence (SSF) technique was used to determine the low critical phase transition temperature (LCST) for PAAm-NIPA copolymers. Swelling experiments ...
