Abstract

Oscillatory adsorption-desorption of Ag nanoparticles on a pH-responsive hydrogel surface was induced by a pH oscillator in a closed reaction system. The hydrogel surface was prepared as a honeycomb-patterned film using a honeycomb-patterned polystyrene film as a template to speed up the response time in the stimuli-responsive hydrogel. The surface morphology and hydrophobic interaction of the patterned hydrogel surface were significantly altered by the pH change of the aqueous solution that came into contact with the gel. The surface of the hydrogel became hydrophobic for adsorption in a lower-pH solution but became hydrophilic with decreased adsorptivity at higher pH conditions. A closed system chemical pH oscillator composed of CaSO3-H 2O2-NaHCO3-H2SO4 was applied to force the periodic adsorption-desorption of Ag nanoparticles on the gel surface. The experimental conditions for the chemical oscillator were optimized to obtain long-lasting high-amplitude pH oscillations in a closed reactor. The periodic adsorption-desorption was proved to be induced by the periodic pH change in the solution, although the two phenomena were not completely synchronized. That is, the periodic time was longer and the number of oscillations was less for the adsorption-desorption compared with the pH oscillations that occurred in the solution state. However, the heterogeneous oscillations obtained in this study clearly suggested that the hydrophobic interaction was reversibly changed in the patterned pH-responsive hydrogel surface, similar to various biological systems in nature.
