Abstract : Water-soluble polymers and hydrogels are important in areas as varied as biomedicine adhesion, membranes, and viscosity enhancement. They are possible replacements in technology and medicine for many naturally-occurring polymers. Unfortunately, relatively few of the hundreds of known synthetic polymers are soluble in water. Thus, the design and synthesis of new water-soluble polymers or hydrogels is a Subject of considerable interest. This chapter is a review of an approach to this problem.
