Swelling properties of Linseed hydrogel (LSH) were studied in deionized water and different physiological pH values, i.e., 1.2, 6.8 and 7.4. Analysis of the kinetics drawn from swelling data has revealed that swelling of LSH followed second order kinetics. The results indicated that swelling of LSH is greatly affected by different concentration of salts. Stimuli responsive on-off switching of LSH was studied in water/normal saline, water/ethanol and basic/acidic environment and found reversible… CONTINUE READING
