Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Molecular design of polymer gels with high swelling properties in non polar solvents lays on compatibility of the polymer chain with oil. In this study, we demonstrate new polymer gels based on the hydrophobic ion pairs in the polymer chain. They provided the high swelling degrees in polar solvents. In the mixtures of water and acetonitrile, the polymer gels exhibited volume phase transition.
