Unusual thermogelling behaviour of poly[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate] (PDMAEMA)-based polymers polymerized in bulk

Author affiliations

Abstract

The bulk synthesis of (PDMAEMA)-based polymers and their unusual thermoreversible gelation in aqueous solutions are described. Herein we show the structure–property relationship between the sol-to-gel phase transition on the polymer characteristics and molecular weight. The tunable sensitivity of these supramolecular sol–gel reversible hydrogels are further described.
