In materials science and engineering, the designing of hydrogels with excellent self-healing and tunable mechanical properties is an inviting issue. In this study, we introduce the sacrificial bonds interactions in a hybrid hydrogel of natural and synthetic polymers, to give a hydrogel with autonomous self-healing ability and tunable mechanical properties… CONTINUE READING
