Photopatterning Spatially Controlled Chemically Functionalized Hydrogels

chemical reaction

The well-defined incorporation of functional molecules into polymer networks is an attractive endeavor with promise throughout materials science, especially biomaterials. Biologically relevant small molecules and proteins within synthetic hydrogels have vast applications including adhesives, drug delivery, and tissue engineering. The formation of structured tissues within an organism is controlled by spatiotemporal patterns of extracellular signals […]
