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
