The poly(N,N-diethylacrylamide-co-(2-dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate) (poly(DEA-co-DMAEMA)) macromonomers with three different chain lengths were prepared by telomerization of DEA and DMAEMA monomers with different ratios of the chain transfer agent, 2-mercaptoethanol. The number-average weight of three macromonomers determined by gel permeation chromatography of the terminal hydroxyl groups was 8355, 10,516 and 15,953, respectively. The comb-type grafted poly(DEA-co-DMAEMA) hydrogels having the different lengths of the grafted chains were synthesized in the presence of crosslinker. Equilibrium and dynamic swelling/deswelling properties of the prepared hydrogels responding to temperature and pH were investigated. Compared to normal-type hydrogel, the comb-type grafted hydrogels exhibited excellent variational values in response to an alternation of the temperature and pH. Moreover, the grafted hydrogels showed quite fast reswelling and deswelling behaviors in response to simultaneous dual temperature and pH stimuli. This is because that the introduction of side chains with freely mobile ends in the comb-type grafted hydrogels made the mobility of the networks increased. The responsive rates of the grafted hydrogels were also controlled by modifying the length of the grafted chains. The dual thermo- and pH-sensitive comb-type grafted poly(DEA-co-DMAEMA) hydrogels in this study may find various potential applications. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

In this study, poly(N,N-diethylacrylamide-co-(2-dimethylamino) ethyl methacrylate) (poly(DEA-co-DMAEMA)) hydrogels were synthesized by changing the initial DEA/DMAEMA mol ratio. The hydrogels were characterized by Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In comparison with the PDEA hydrogel, the equilibrium swelling ratio (ESR) and lower critical solution temperature (LCST) of the hydrogels increase with the increase of DMAEMA content in the feed. The deswelling and reswelling kinetics and cytotoxicity of the different composition ratios of DEA to DMAEMA in the co-polymerized hydrogels were also investigated in detail. The absorption and release behaviour of the model drug, bovine serum albumin, were found to be dependent on hydrogel composition and environment temperature, which suggests that these materials have potential application as intelligent drug carriers. © 2011 Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden.

In this paper, a series of semi-interpenetrating polymer network (semi-IPN) hydrogels based on poly((2-dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate)/poly (N,N-diethylacrylamide) (PDMAEMA/PDEA) were synthesized by changing the initial PDMAEMA/DEA molar ratio at room temperature. The influence of this additive on the property of resulting PDEA hydrogels was investigated and characterized. The interior morphology by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) revealed that the semi-IPN hydrogels have interconnected porous network structures. The glass transition temperature (Tg.) of the semi-IPN hydrogels was observed by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Equilibrium swelling ratio (ESR), swelling and deswelling dynamics of the hydrogels responding to temperature and pH were investigated in detail. Compared to PDEA, the semi-IPN hydrogels exhibited excellent mutative values in response to an alternation of the temperature and pH, and showed fast swelling and deswelling rates in response to temperature and pH change. The release behaviors of the model drug, aminophylline, were found dependent on hydrogel compositions and environmental temperature. These results suggest that the stimuli semi-IPN hydrogel have potential application as intelligent drug carriers. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2010.
