Synthetic adhesives inspired by marine mussel have attracted great attention due to its excellent water-resistance and good biocompatibility. In this study, a photocrosslinkable bioadhesive containing 3,4-Dihydroxy-l-phenylalanine (DOPA) functional group, which is central to curing mussel adhesive proteins, was prepared by
