Biocompatible hydrogels by oxime Click chemistry.


Oxime Click chemistry was used to form hydrogels that support cell adhesion. Eight-armed aminooxy poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) was mixed with glutaraldehyde to form oxime-linked hydrogels. The mechanical properties, gelation kinetics, and water swelling ratios were studied and found to be tunable. It was also shown that gels containing the integrin ligand… (More)
