Reported here is a hydrogel-forming polymer network that contains a water-sol. tetracationic macrocycle. Upon immersion of this polymer network in aq. solns. contg. various inorg. and org. salts, changes in the phys. properties are obsd. that are consistent with absorption of the constituent anions into the polymer network.
