Novel nanocomposite hydrogels...

with a unique organic--inorganic (clay) network structure have been synthesized by in-situ free radical polymerization. The resulting nanocomposite hydrogels exhibit high structural homogeneity, superior elongation with near-complete recovery, good swellability, and rapid de-swelling in response to temperature changes. (K. Haraguchi et al., August 16, Adv. Mater. 2002, 14, 1120-1124)
