Effect of the Pore Formation on the Solution Flow through Acrylamide Gel

  • H. Tamagawa (a1), S. Popovic (a1) and M. Taya (a1)


A simple synthesis method of porous acrylamide gel is proposed. Pore formation in gel body is dominated by the amount of polymerization initiator, accelerator and gelation temperature. We investigated the influence of these factors on the number and the size of pores. Gelation temperature control is the easiest and the most effective way to create a number of large pores in a gel body. We also investigated the pore volume fraction dependence of solution flow through the gels. Solution flow rate was found to be promoted with the increase of pore volume fraction.
