インテリジェント材料として注目されている温度応答性を示すpoly(N-isopropylacrylamide)ゲルの架橋構造と収縮速度との関係を調べた。架橋剤を用いたモノマー重合法及び$$gamma$$線を用いたポリマー架橋法により、架橋構造の異なる2種類のポリマーゲルを作製した。モノマー重合法で作製したゲルの収縮速度はポリマー架橋法で作製したものとほとんど同じだった。ところが、小角中性子散乱法や動的/静的光散乱法より、それらのミクロ構造は全く異なることがわかった。これらの検討より、モノマー重合法で得られたゲルは、ポリマー架橋法で得られたゲルの持つ凍結濃度ゆらぎに起因する不均一性に加えて、ゲル化過程で生じる架橋点の空間分布に起因するもう一つの不均一性を有することがわかった。

The shrinking kinetics of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPA) gels has been studied for two types of PNIPA gels prepared by (i) copolymerization of constituent monomer and cross-linker and (ii) $$gamma$$-ray irradiation in the PNIPA solutions in order to investigate the role of cross-linking on shrinking kinetics. The shrinking kinetics of the monomer cross-linked gels is quite similar to that of the polymer cross-linked gels. On the other hand, a significant difference was found when the microscopic structure and the dynamics were investigated by small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and static/dynamic light scattering (SLS/DLS). The degree of built-in inhomogeneities and dynamic fluctuations were evaluated as a function of the cross-linking degree and the gel preparation temperature by intensity decomposition methods for both types of gels. It is concluded that the monomer cross-linked gels have extra built-in inhomogeneities due to the spatial distribution of crosslinks in addition to the frozen concentration fluctuations inherent in polymer gels.
