In this study, temperature-dependent FTIR spectroscopy in combination with the perturbation-correlation moving-window (PCMW2D) technique and generalized two-dimensional (2D) correlation analysis was applied to investigate the phase transition mechanism of poly(N-vinylcaprolactam) (PVCL) hydrogel upon heating. In the conventional 1D FTIR spectra...
