This describes the cross-linking/co-polymerization reaction of chitosan ( CS), acrylic acid (AAc), and N, N'-methylenebisacrylamide (MBA) in the presence of citrate-covered-gamma-Fe(2)O(3) nanoparticules. A gelling process was verified by means of spectroscopic methods; Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) and solid-state (13)C-CP/MAS nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). The corresponding signals of the gelling process, in the (13)C NMR spectra, for the magnetic hydrogel were shifted to lower values due to embedding of the citrate-covered-gamma-Fe(2)O(3) nanoparticules. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) confirmed that the crystallinity of the magnetic hydrogel exhibited a different crystalline structure to that without magnetic properties. The Mossbauer and magnetization analysis revealed that the magnetic hydrogel displays a high lattice strain, due to bonded iron atom covalence and superparamagnetism. From scanning electronic microscope (SEM) micrographs, no separation phase coexists between the magnetic nanoparticules and cross-linked hydrogel, indicating an excellent dispersion throughout the hydrogel. The swelling rate was dependent on the cross-linking degree of the hydrogel and ionic strength of the aqueous solution. (c) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. (AU)
