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 ...
Modelling of Swelling by the Fluorescence Technique in Kappa Carrageenan Gels
(Amer Inst Physics, 2011)
Kappa (-kappa) carrageenan gels prepared with various carrageenan concentrations in pure water were completely dried and then swelled in water vapor. Steady state fluorescence measurements were performed using a spectrometer ...
