Frontal polymerization has been successfully used to synthesize poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) nanocomposite hydrogels containing graphene. The latter was directly achieved by ultrasound treatment of a dispersion of graphite in N-methylpyrrolidone. The dispersion, having the concentration of 2.21 g L−1, was characterized by TEM analysis and mixed with suitable amounts of N-isopropylacrylamide for the synthesis of graphene-containing nanocomposite polymer hydrogels. The nanocomposite hydrogels were… Expand

TLDR
By comparison with analogous samples prepared by the classical polymerization technique, it was found that the two methods give rise to hydrogels characterized by very diverse swelling capability; furthermore, swelling reversibility was found to be different when temperature is allowed to cyclically vary between values that are below and above the lower critical solution temperature.
