Title : Injectable and moldable hydrogels with high mechanical strength

Abstract:

Traditional injectable hydrogels made of chitosan have relative smaller tensile strength lower elasticity compared to highly stretchable elastomers. This work focuses on the development of a new hydrogel based on a recently discovered tough hydrogel. This new type of hydrogel serve as a remarkable injectable and moldable hydrogel material for with high elasticity and durability. 

Audience take away:

  • Explain how the audience will be able to use what they learn? The audience will learn how a new type of hydrogel can be made and potential applications of this type of hydrogels.

  • How will this help the audience in their job? Is this research that other faculty could use to expand their research or teaching? Does this provide a practical solution to a problem that could simplify or make a designer’s job more efficient? Will it improve the accuracy of a design, or provide new information to assist in a design problem? List all other benefits. The technology may have a wide applications in industry. It will expand their research. It is likely to solve issued related to low mechanical strength of their materials.
