Abstract:Analysis of swelling kinetics is also possible with the assumption that the rate of swelling is proportional to the square of the amount of water that the gel has to absorb from the solution. This assumption produces a linear relationship between t/v and t, where t is time and v is a dimensionless volume. Various chemical and physical cases are compared in an attempt to determine their influence on the kinetic response of constrained microscale hydrogels.
