    • Abstract


      Organic solvent-soluble N-maleoyl-chitosan (NMCS) was synthesized by reaction of chitosan with maleic anhydride (MAH) in N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF). N-maleoyl-chitosan-graft-poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (NMCS-g-PNIPAAm) copolymer hydrogel was prepared via free radical polymerization by electron beam (EB) irradiation. The copolymer obtained was analysed by FT–IR, XRD and thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA). It was found that the grafting yield and grafting efficiency increased with increasing radiation absorbed dose and monomer amount, and then decreased. The swelling ratio of the copolymer hydrogel was low at pH 4–5, and LCST of the hydrogel was around 32°C.
