The swelling equilibrium behaviour of N-n-butyl-N,N-dimethyl-4-vinyl benzylammonium bromide (BBABr) gel was measured in aqueous solutions of various inorganic electrolytes: HBr, LiBr, NaBr, KBr, NH4Br, NaC1, NaI and NaC104. The equilibrium swelling volume of BBABr gel does not depend strongly on the cationic species but on the anionic species. In aqueous solutions containing I- and C10~ ions, the volume-phase transitions of the BBABr gel were induced by a change in the concentration of the electrolytes. It was verified experimentally with 79Br n.m.r, and an ion electrode that the volume-phase transition is controlled by the change in the association state of the charged groups in the gel.
