Abstract: Crosslinked poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) hydrogels have been widely studied for a variety of thermoresponsive applications, including chromatography, affinity precipitation, controlled biocatalysis, viable cell immobilisation, biomimetic actuators and, in particular, modulated drug delivery. The exploitation of crosslinked poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) hydrogels in all these applications relies on the well-known temperature-sensitive swelling properties of these hydrogels. The purpose of the current study was to …
