In order to clarify the effect of hydrophobic structures on the hydrophilicity of membranes copolymer membranes composed of a hydrophilic monomer and a hydrophobic monomer. 28 copolymer membranes composed of N-vinyl pyrrolidone (NVP) as a hydrophilic monomer and methyl methacrylate (MMA), ethyl methacrylate (EMA) and iso-butyl methacrylate (IBM) were synthesized. For these copolymer membranes the effect of the side chains of metacrylates on the water content and permeability of oxygen dissolved in water, and solutes was investigated.
