Abstract

Gels have unique properties such as low frictional properties, permeability and biocompatibility due to their high water content. When the gels are developed as industrial materials, we need to establish a method of quantitative analysis derived from the internal structure and mechanical properties of these gels. In this study, the internal structure of the dry-synthesis gels were precisely examined experimentally by the scattering microscopic light scattering and theoretically by the tensile test. By comparing the two quantities, the dense network structure makes the mechanical properties of gels smaller than theoretical estimation. Based on our findings, the strength of the gels can be controlled and expected.
