Abstract The advances in the field of biomaterials have led to several studies on alternative biocompatible devices and to their development focusing on their properties, benefits, limitations, and utilization of alternative resources. Due to their advantages like biocompatibility, biodegradability, and low cost, polysaccharides have been widely used in the development of hydrogels. Among the polysaccharides studied on hydrogels preparation, chitosan (pure or combined with natural/synthetic polymers) have been widely investigated for use in biomedical field. In view of potential applications of chitosan-based hydrogels, this review focuses on the most recent progress made with respect to preparation, properties, and their salient accomplishments for drug delivery and tissue engineering.

Abstract Injectable hydrogels have been an attractive topic in biomaterials. However, during gelation in vivo, they are easy to disperse due to tissue exudates, thus leading to failure of controlled drug release. To solve this problem, we present a novel polysaccharide-based injectable hydrogel via self-crosslinking of aldehyde-modified xanthan (Xan-CHO) and carboxymethyl-modified chitosan (NOCC). The physical properties were optimized by adjusting the mass ratio of Xan-CHO and NOCC. Experiments...

Abstract In this study, chitosan-poly(methacrylic acid-co-N-isopropylacrylamide) [chitosan-p(MAA-co-NIPAM)] hydrogels were synthesized by emulsion polymerization. In order to be used as a carrier for drug delivery systems, the hydrogels had to be biocompatible, biodegradable and multi-responsive. The polymerization was performed by copolymerize MAA and NIPAM with chitosan polymer to produce a chitosan-based hydrogel. Due to instability during synthesis and complexity of components to produce the...

Abstract In this paper, the microbial transglutaminase (MTGase) was used as a catalyst to graft the collagen peptide (COP) molecules on the amino group of chitosan to obtain water-soluble chitosan-collagen peptide (CS-COP) derivatives. The preparation of composite hydrogel was via the Schiff-base reaction between the amino of CS-COP and the aldehyde of oxidized konjac glucomannan (OKGM). The hydrogels were characterized by various techniques including Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-...

: A series of thermo/pH sensitive N-succinyl hydroxybutyl chitosan (NSHBC) hydrogels with different substitution degrees of succinyl are prepared for drug delivery. Rheology analysis shows that the gelation temperature of NSHBC hydrogels is 3.8 °C higher than that of hydroxybutyl chitosan (HBC) hydrogels. A model drug bovine serum albumin (BSA) is successfully loaded and released. NSHBC hydrogels show excellent pH sensitivity drug release behaviors. After incubation for 24 h, 93.7% of BSA is rel...

Functional active wound dressings are expected to provide a moist wound environment, offer protection from secondary infections, remove wound exudate and accelerate tissue regeneration, as well as to improve the efficiency of wound healing. Chitosan-based hydrogels are considered as ideal materials for enhancing wound healing owing to their biodegradable, biocompatible, non-toxic, antimicrobial, biologically adhesive, biological activity and hemostatic effects. Chitosan-based hydrogels have been...

Abstract Chitosan-based magnetic beads were developed by solution-mixing method. Firstly, the Fe 3 O 4 nanoparticles were in situ immobilized on laponite RD sheets. The magnetic laponite RD was then dispersed in PVA and mixed with chitosan solution. PVA was aimed to prevent the disintegration of chitosan under acidic media due to its ability to form hydrogel network through freezing-thawing method. The manufactured magnetic chitosan/PVA/laponite RD beads were utilized for adsorption study of a m...

Abstract The bioavailability and clinical effect of curcumin (Cur) are greatly restricted due to its physicochemical instability and high hydrophobicity. To overcome the disadvantages, the nanofibers of poly(lactide–glycolide)/chitosan loaded with Cur (PLGA/CS/Cur) was developed here by electrospinning technique for controlled Cur delivery. The incorporated Cur was well-dispersed and maintained crystalline form in PLGA/CS fiber matrix by hydrogen bonding. The incorporation of Cur had no obvious i...

Abstract Particularly, chitosan (Cs) loaded with drug cannot pass through the colonic region, often leading in the bursting drug release in the stomach due to its solubility in gastric contents. The novelty of the current article is to solve this limitation by performing gamma irradiation cross-linking of Cs with two anionic polymers of (acrylic acid)-co-(2-acrylamido-2-methylpropane-sulfonic acid) (AAc/AMPS) to give amphiphilic hydrogel. The shifted in the characteristic FTIR peaks of Cs in the...

Abstract In this work, we show how simple mixing of mineral clay materials and a biopolymer chitosan to afford hydrogel composites with significantly enhanced performances in instant mechanical recovery and self-healing, anti-high temperature and anti-high ionic strength activities. Benefited by the electrostatic attraction between anionic clay and cationic chitosan, molecular level coassembly was achieved, which gave rise to a robust and rapidly self-healable hydrogel. Synergistic effect betwee...

Abstract Chitosan-based hydrogels have been widely used for various biomedical applications due to their versatile properties such as biocompatibility, biodegradability, muco-adhesiveness, hemostatic effect and so on. However, the inherent rigidity and brittleness of pure chitosan hydrogels are still unmanageable, which has limited their potential use in biomaterial research. In this study, we developed in situ forming chitosan/PEG hydrogels with improved mechanical properties, using the enzymat...

Abstract Chitosan’s lack of solubility in physiological pH and high molecular weight limits its use in hydrogel scaffolds. Conversion of chitosan to low molecular weight (MW) chitooligosaccharides (COS) not only imparts water solubility, it also enhances several other biological properties. When used in hydrogels, the low molecular weight (MW) improves the performance of the hydrogels, e.g., the absorptive property, biocompatibility and cell proliferation capability. Most importantly, properties...

Abstract A dual pH-/thermo-responsive hydrogel was designed based on a polyelectrolyte complex of polyacrylic acid (PAA) and norbornene-functionalized chitosan (CsNb), which was synergized with chemical crosslinking using bistetrazine-poly(N-isopropyl acrylamide) (bisTz-PNIPAM). The thermo-responsive polymeric crosslinker, bisTz-PNIPAM, was synthesized via reversible addition–fragmentation transfer polymerization of NIPAM. FTIR, XRD, rheological and morphological analyses demonstrated the succes...

Hydrogels are an important class of biomaterials with the unique property of high-water content in a crosslinked polymer network. In particular, chemically crosslinked hydrogels have made a great clinical impact in past years because of their desirable mechanical properties and tunability of structural and chemical properties. Various polymers and step-growth crosslinking chemistries are harnessed for fabricating such covalently crosslinked hydrogels for translational research. However, selectin...
