We study the regularities of preparation of highly hydrophilic membranes based on the compositions of hydroxyalkyl (meth)acrylate with polyvinylpyrolidone. The relationship is established between the parameters of complex formation for a monomer and polyvinylpyrolidone in the initial composition and the composition of the polymeric network and its structural parameters. We discover efficient methods for the directed structure formation and control over the properties of the investigated membranes.
