Thermal analysis of water in p(HEMA) hydrogels.


Hydrogels composed of poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (pHEMA) and water were investigated using differential thermal analysis (DTA) and adiabatic calorimetry (AC). The results show that the crystallization of water in the gels is a very gradual process, leading to the development of a metastable, non-equilibrium state. They are not in agreement with models… (More)
