Control of Mesh Size and Modulus by Kinetically Dependent Cross-Linking in Hydrogels
2015 (English)In: Advanced Materials, ISSN 0935-9648, E-ISSN 1521-4095, n/a-n/a p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Kinetically controlled cross-linking processes produce mechanically distinguishable hydrogels using identical precursor chemistry. The oxime ligation demonstrates tunable reaction kinetics with pH and buffer strength, which induce changes in the structural features of hydrogels and determine their mechanical properties. Small-angle neutron scattering and swelling studies provide an insight into how structural properties correlate with mechanical properties for this hydrogel system.
