Subject of this study is mathematical modelling of pH responsive anionic hydrogels, with the ultimate aim to generate a model which can be used in place of experimental investigation. Proposed model is based on coupling Poisson–Nernst–Planck (PNP) equation with momentum equation and therefore accounts for both distribution of ionic species and mechanical deformation of a hydrogel. Simulation study using proposed model shows increase in hydrogel swelling with the increase in pH.
