Hydrophobicity indices for poly(HEMA)-based hydrogels:HEMA, AEMA, and DMAEMA calculated from two differentmethods: 1) Partition coefficients, and 2) Kyte-Doolittle scaleare depicted.Thermograms from differential scanning calorimetry ofpoly(HEMA)-based hydrogels containing AEMA, DMAEMA, and amixture of AEMA and DMAEMA are included to represent the glasstransition temperature (Tg) values of the hydrogels.More information on the methodology to calculate the hydro-phobicity indices using the aforementioned methods and theprocedure for using a differential scanning calorimeter and anal-ysis of a thermogram is described.Details of how the changes in the feed composition ofpoly(HEMA)-based hydrogels was made is provided in theresearch article‘MOLECULAR ENGINEERING OF POLY(HEMA-co-PEGMA)-BASED HYDROGELS: ROLE OF MINOR AEMA ANDDMAEMA INCLUSION’(Bhat et al., 2019).[1].
