摘要：Multilayer hydrogels were prepared by frontal photopolymerization of acrylamide and 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropane sulfonic acid using hydrophilic reactive microgels (HRM) as crosslinkers instead of conventional crosslinkers. The hydrophilic microgels (HM) were prepared by inverse emulsion photopolymerization and then were chemical modified by N-methylolacrylamide (NMA) to obtain HRM with CC double bonds. The HM and HRM was characterized by dynamic light scattering measurements, SEM, TEM and FTIR, respectively. It was found that the resulting multilayer hydrogels showed high fracture strength and high tensile elongation along parallel direction. However their fracture strength and tensile elongation along perpendicular direction was very weak. The swollen multilayer hydrogels were about 1.0-2.0 mm in thickness, the maximal equilibrium swelling degree was only 30.45. The multilayer hydrogels were characterized by DSC, TEM and XRD, respectively. The swelling property and mechanical strength of some typical multilayer hydrogels were studied.
