Abstract

The elastic moduli of. different network systems, swollen in good diluents have been determined by unidirectional compression measurements. The systems studied obey a simple scaling law independently of the preparation conditions and the chemical nature of the diluents. The exponents and prefactors for different polymer-diluent systems have been summarized. The effect of solvent quality on the equilibrium swelling degree of the gels has been discussed.
