TOC

The physico-mechanical and swelling properties of P(DMAEMA-co-HEMA) hydrogels are investigated to trigger the conformation transition in polymer matrix to control their temperature-sensitivity. The copolymer hydrogels exhibit strong thermosensitivity owing to the strengthening of the hydrophobic interactions with increasing temperature.
