Abstract

The kinetics of swelling and shrinking of disk-shaped poly(vinyl acetate) networks swollen in isopropyl alcohol is measured at different temperatures. The cooperative diffusion coefficient and the ratio of the shear modulus over the longitudinal osmotic modulus have been determined using a theory developed by Li and Tanaka. The macroscopic swelling and deswelling experiments show good agreement with other experimental results as well as with the theoretical predictions.
