Abstract

In order to describe the mechanical and swelling behavior of gels immersed in polymer solutions, theoretical considerations based on both classical and scaling theories are discussed and compared with experimental findings. Three situations are studied: (1) the gel is separated from the surrounding solution by a semipermeable membrane; (2) the gel is immersed in the semidilute solution of a chemically identical polymer; (3) the gel is directly immersed in the semidilute solution of a chemically different polymer. An attempt is made to take into account the effect of the penetrating polymer on the elastic modulus and the swelling pressure of the gel.
