Interpenetrating polymer networks (IPNs) composed of hydrophobic polystyrene (PS) and hydrophilic poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA) were synthesized by a sequential IPN method, and they showed a microphase-separated structure. A common solvent, dimethylformamide, which swells the polymer I network and dissolves monomer II, was used to impregnate monomer II into the network of polymer I. The content of polymer II in the IPNs became large when the crosslink density of polymer I was low and that of polymer II was high. It was found that certain monomer II concentration in the swelling agent existed that maximized the polymer II fraction in the IPN. Contact angle and Fourier-transform infra-red measurements revealed that the polymer II content decreased gradually towards the surface of the IPNs. The gradient composition observed in the IPNs was explained by the polymerization inhibition by oxygen and the thermodynamic effect.
