Cellular poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogels that exhibit enhanced swelling kinetics from an initial dry state were prepared by freezing and thawing techniques in the presence of NaCl. Gels that were dried immediately after preparation demonstrated a dual-sorption effect upon swelling. Gels that were exposed to a 10-day washing period to remove NaCl and excess PVA chains before drying showed an increased initial rate of swelling and overall water content. Freeze/thawed, cellular PVA gels showed… CONTINUE READING
