Hydrogels for biomedical purposes based on copolymers of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate with polyvinylprrolidone was synthesized. The influence of received compositions components, the effect of nature and the amount of solvent on the structure, the degree of swelling and permeability of the synthesized hydrogel membranes was introduced.
