Bio-inspired catechol chemistry: a new way to develop a re-moldable and injectable coacervate hydrogel.


PMID 23125984

Abstract

A new way is demonstrated to develop a bio-inspired coacervate hydrogel by following catechol chemistry showing injectable and re-moldable physical properties. The formed coacervate shows potential long-term stability under water. Depending on pH, formation of the coacervate has been verified which is confirmed by XPS and zeta potential measurements.
