Abstract

The fabrication of novel bacterial cellulose/polyacrylamide-based hydrogels by accelerated radiation by microwave was investigated. This study was designed and optimized using the Taguchi method by taking irradiation time and power as the main parameters. The results revealed the dependence of percentage gel fraction and swelling index on the synthesis parameters using a microwave. The gel fraction was proportionally increased with power and time. The bacterial cellulose fibers crosslinked with polyacrylamide polymer chain as the thermal energy in the monomer mixture quickly rose, leading to a higher degree of polymerization. A highly time-efficient processing with interchangeable parameters allows various hydrogel properties to be developed.
