The present work is mainly focused on the synthesis and comprehensive rheological investigation of uniform and large macroporous polyethylene glycol-modified polyacrylamide hydrogels [PEG-m-P(AAm)] through free radical polymerization using different accelerators (ascorbic acid (AsA), thermal activation (60 °C) and N,N′,N″,N‴-tetramethyl ethylenediamine (TEMED)). The synthesis and surface morphology of the hydrogels were confirmed by FTIR and SEM techniques. Rheological investigation was carried ...

Smart superabsorbent hydrogels consisting of acrylamide/sodium alginate (AS), acrylamide/sodium alginate/2-acrylamido-2-methylpropane sulphonic acid (ASAx, x = amount of AMPS) were synthesized via free radical polymerization. The swelling behavior of the hydrogels was studied in distilled and tap water. It was found that by increasing the amount of 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropanesulphonic (AMPS) in the hydrogel composition, the hydrogel swelling capability was enhanced from 3685% for AS to 4797% fo...

Supply of adequate moisture is one of the most important factors limiting agricultural extension and productivity. Ca 2+ and K + are both essential plant nutrients required in a number of developmental and metabolic processes. Both of these nutrients play an important role in ameliorating drought stress in crop plants. This experiment was designed to study whether exogenous application of Ca 2+ and K + before the drought could enhance the potential of plants to survive under limiting water condi...
