    Two critical points of the gel–gel transition in N-isopropylacrylamide gels were determined on the basis of the measurement of the coexistence curve. One of them was realized by changing the composition of solvent (water–methanol mixture) and the other by applying the osmotic...

    A theoretical model that considers hydrophobic interaction is proposed for the thermally induced discontinuous shrinkage of hydrogels. In this model, the free energy of a hydrogel is divided into four parts: the elastic free energy of networks formulated according to the theory which takes the...

    We describe the use of single-plane phase retrieval tomography using a laboratory-based x-ray source, under conditions where the retrieval is not formally valid, to present images of the internal structure of an Aerosil granule and a hydrated bentonite gel. The technique provides phase images...

    The salt effect on the phase transition of N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPA) gel was studied. The swelling behavior of the NIPA gel strongly depends on the salt concentration and is well described as a function of the chemical potential difference of water molecules in solution from that at the...

    The enthalpically favoured hydration of hydrophobic entities, termed hydrophobic hydration, impacts the phase behaviour of numerous amphiphiles in water. Here, we show experimental evidence that hydrophobic hydration is strongly determined by the mean energetics of the aqueous medium. We...

    In this study we used Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy to investigate the phase behavior of poly( N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) in mixed solvents comprising DO and tetrahydrofuran- d(THF- d8). The signals of the CH groups of the N-isopropyl amide unit and the CH groups on the...

    We report on an observation of the phase transition between two liquid phases of supercooled confined water in simulations. The temperature of the liquid-liquid transition of water at zero pressure slightly decreases due to confinement in the hydrophobic pore. The hydrophilic confinement affects...
