Abstract

The paper deals with the synthesis and investigation of mechanical properties of multifunctional polyglycerol nanogels which consist of PEG with different chain lengths (glycerol, PEG 400, PEG 400-DGE, and PEG 1500). Their swelling behavior, elasticity, and stiffness are discussed in correlation with the PEG chain length. The nanogels built of PEG 400 exhibited most interesting and promising features and show the highest elasticity.
