08/01/2007 - "Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) revealed that the blended swollen films exhibited a more porous structure at 37 degrees C (>LCST) than at room temperature (<LCST), though their swelling ratios were reduced as temperature increased from room temperature to 37 degrees C because of the dehydration nature of PNIPAAm at temperatures above its LCST. "
10/01/2006 - "We found that the usual aggregation and phase separation of PNIPAAm-SA conjugates that follow the thermally induced collapse and dehydration of PNIPAAm (the lower critical solution temperature (LCST) of PNIPAAm is 32 degrees C in water) is prevented through the shielding action of the PAA block. "
08/10/2015 - "The poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAm) chain showed an expanded coil conformation below the lower critical solution temperature (LCST) due to hydration, but it changed to a globular form above the LCST due to dehydration. "
01/01/2011 - "Cell sheet technology (CST) is based on the use of poly (N-isopropylacrylamide, PNIPAAm), which can be exhibit reversible hydration and dehydration of its polymer chains in response to temperature changes across the lower critical solution temperature(LCST)of 32°C. "
06/21/2003 - "Through copolymerization/crosslinking in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) at temperature below the melting point of DMSO, we demonstrated a novel poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAm) hydrogel with regularly oriented micromatrix; the superfast/stable oscillatory hydration-dehydration character of this hydrogel would find wide applications in biomedical field."
