Water swelling, brine soluble imidazole based zwitterionic polymers – synthesis and study of reversible UCST behaviour and gel–sol transitions

Author affiliations

Abstract

New vinylbenzene substituted imidazole based zwitterionic polymers with unique characteristics like swelling in water and solubility in concentrated brine solution in which they exhibited a reversible upper critical solution temperature (UCST) and gel–sol transitions are reported herein.
