Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis, 2014)Copolymer based on cross-linked polyacrylamide (PAAm) having N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPA) was prepared and their elastic properties were studied as a function of NIPA contents. NIPA content dependency of the shear modulus S of the PAAm-NIPA copolymers due to volume phase transition was measured using tensile testing technique at 30 degrees C. It was observed that its shear modulus and toughness were found to be strongly dependent on NIPA content. It is understood that the shear modulus was found ...
Mechanical properties of graphene oxide-polyacrylamide composites before and after swelling in water Authors:
Publisher and Date:(Springer, 2018)Polyacrylamide (PAAm) hydrogels have been proposed for use as promising biomaterials in biomedical and tissue engineering but their poor mechanical and water-retention properties have hindered their development. Graphene oxide (GO) an excellent nanofiller was added to PAAm to produce mechanically strong GO-PAAm composites. The free radical crosslinking copolymerization method was used with GO content varying in the range between 5 and 50 A mu l of GO. The mechanical properties of the GO-PAAm ...
Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2018)Acrylamide (AAm) - N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPA) copolymers were prepared via free radical crosslinking copolymerization with various weight percentages (wt%) of AAm and NIPA. The temperature dependence of the compressive elastic modulus G and toughness U-TU- of the PAAm- NIPA copolymers due to a volume phase transition was found using a compressive testing technique. It was observed that the compressive elastic modulus increased comprehensively when the temperature was increased between 30 degrees ...
