Trendy advances in electric cars and wearable electronics triggered growing awareness in device lethality/survivability from accidents. A divergent design in protection calls for high stress resistance, large ductility, as well as efficient energy dissipation, all from the device itself, while keeping the weight-specific device performance to its premium. Unfortunately, the polymer electrolyte or the ductile elastomer lacks a mechanistic design to resist puncture or tear at a high stress level. ...

: Fabricating a strain sensor that can detect large deformation over a curved object with a high sensitivity is crucial in wearable electronics, human/machine interfaces, and soft robotics. Herein, an ionogel nanocomposite is presented for this purpose. Tuning the composition of the ionogel nanocomposites allows the attainment of the best features, such as excellent self-healing (>95% healing efficiency), strong adhesion (347.3 N m-1 ), high stretchability (2000%), and more than ten times change...

Exploring photoluminescent silk fibers, possessing biocompatibility as well as stable and durable fluorescent properties, is a requirement for the development of novel photoluminescent biomaterials. Herein, we fabricate photoluminescent silk fibers, TPCA@SF, via modifying an organic fluorescent molecule (5-oxo-3,5-dihydro-2H-thiazolo [3,2-a] pyridine-7-carboxylic acid, TPCA) onto silk fibers, along with using quaternary ammonium salt didodecyldimethylammonium bromide (DDAB) as a color-fixing age...

Endothelial cells have presented a wide variety of applications including tissue engineering, artificial organs, and pharmaceutical drug screening. The new insight in exploring synthetic hydrogels which are suitable for expansion of endothelial cells and keeping their original functions will open a new era of soft and wet biomaterials as active templates for cell expansion. In this chapter, we introduce a cell culture system based on protein-free synthetic hydrogels for expansion of endothelial ...

Abstract Nature resource-derived hydrogels with the properties of both self-healing and photoluminescence are urgent needed to develop. Herein, we demonstrate that carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC)-based hydrogels can be engineered to exhibit the integrate capabilities of self-healing, photoluminescence and stretchability by a facile, green and economic approach. The CMC-based hydrogels present blue-green color under ultraviolet light, and self-heal in ambient temperature without any external stimul...

Hydrogel nanocomposites are hydrogels with inorganic nanoparticles loading in 3D polymeric networks. They combine a range of physical, chemical and biological functions of inorganic nanoparticles with hydrogels. More importantly, the synergy effects can be obtained by controlling the interactions between nanoparticles and polymer chains. As a result, hydrogel nanocomposites can be adapted to more complex practical conditions and to meet the requirements of more diverse applications. This paper r...

Development of novel photoluminescent hydrogels with toughness, biocompatibility, and antibiosis is important for the applications in biomedical field. Herein, novel tough photoluminescent lanthanide (Ln)-alginate/poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogels with the properties of biocompatibility and antibiosis have been facilely synthesized by introducing hydrogen bonds and coordination bonds into the interpenetrating networks of Na-alginate and PVA, via approaches of frozen-thawing and ion-exchanging....

Self-healing injectable hydrogels can be formulated as three-dimensional carriers for the treatment of neurological diseases with desirable advantages, such as avoiding the potential risks of cell loss during injection, protecting cells from the shearing force of injection. However, the demands for biocompatible self-healing injectable hydrogels to meet above requirements and to promote the differentiation of neural stem cells (NSCs) into neurons remain a challenge. Herein, we developed a biocom...

Abstract SnO 2 @C nanocomposites are easily synthesized in a large scale by the hydrolysis of Sn 4+ ions in a polyacrylic acid (PAA) hydrogel system, followed by the decomposition of Sn(OH) 4 and carbonization of PAA by heat treatment in one-system. The SnO 2 @C nanocomposites contain uniform ultrafine SnO 2 nanoparticles (≈4.3 nm) homogenously embedded in a three-dimensional carbon matrix. This unique structure efficiently suppresses the particle pulverization and aggregation of SnO 2 , thus ma...
