Hydrophobicity indices for poly(HEMA)-based hydrogels: HEMA, AEMA, and DMAEMA calculated from two different methods: 1)Partition coefficients, and 2)Kyte-Doolittle scale are depicted. Thermograms from differential scanning calorimetry of poly(HEMA)-based hydrogels containing AEMA, DMAEMA, and a mixture of AEMA and DMAEMA are included to represent the glass transition temperature (Tg)values of the hydrogels. More information on the methodology to calculate the hydrophobicity indices using the aforementioned methods and the procedure for using a differential scanning calorimeter and analysis of a thermogram is described. Details of how the changes in the feed composition of poly(HEMA)-based hydrogels was made is provided in the research article ‘MOLECULAR ENGINEERING OF POLY(HEMA-co-PEGMA)-BASED HYDROGELS: ROLE OF MINOR AEMA AND DMAEMA INCLUSION’ (Bhat et al., 2019)..
