Hydrogels consisting of sodium alginate and N-isopropylacrylamide covalently crosslinked with N,N′-methylenebisacrylamide were prepared. The mixed-interpenetrated networks obtained were characterized using elemental analysis, Fourier transform infrared and Raman spectroscopy, swelling measurements and environmental scanning electron microscopy. The thermo- and pH-responsive properties of these hydrogels were evidenced by their swelling behaviour, which depended also on the amount of crosslinking agent and hydrogel composition.
