Hydrogels for Biomedical Applications: Their Characteristics and the Mechanisms behind Them

Qinyuan Chai, Yang Jiao and Xinjun Yu Hydrogels are hydrophilic, three-dimensional networks that are able to absorb largequantities of water or biological fluids, and thus have the potential to be used as prime candidatesfor biosensors, drug delivery vectors, and carriers or matrices for cells in tissue engineering.In this critical review article, advantages of the hydrogels […]
