Two hydrophilic monomers, 2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate (DMAEMA, ionizable) and methoxy hexa(ethylene glycol) methacrylate (HEGMA, non-ionic), and one Hydrophobic monomer, n-butyl methacrylate (BuMA) were copolymerized via group transfer polymerization (GTP) to prepare eight equimolar, isomeric, amphiphilic terpolymer networks. The degree of swelling in acidic water of these networks varied, depending on network structure. © 2005 International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry.
