Mechanical properties of graphene oxide-polyacrylamide composites before and after swelling in water
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 ...
Temperature Effect on the Elasticity of Acrylamide-n-Isopropylacrylamide Copolymers
(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 ...
