Crude and unmodified acetylated galactoglucomannan containing wood hydrolysate (WH) was directly incorporated into a semi-interpenetrating network (semi-IPN) composed of up to 60% renewable polymers. Semi-IPNs were produced by a facile and green synthetic pathway through cross-linking modified carboxymethylcellulose in the presence of at least 30%(w/w) WH, via free radical copolymerization with acrylic acid and N,N′-methylenebis(acrylamide). FTIR verified the presence of WH interlaced with CMC…

A green route to prepare fluorescent and absorbent nano-hybrid hydrogel for water detection
An environment-friendly fluorescent nano-hybrid hydrogel has been synthesized successfully, from cellulose nanocrystal, acrylic acid and phosphorescent Eu2+/Dy3+ doped SrAl2O4 via free radical polymerization, and displayed excellent water retention property and significant linear relationship with the swelling ratio.
Oral Administration of Salecan-Based Hydrogels for Controlled Insulin Delivery.
Oral administration of insulin-loaded salecan hydrogels in diabetic rats resulted in a sustained decrease of fasting plasma glucose levels over 6 h postadministration, and the relative pharmacological bioavailability of insulin was significantly larger for diabetic animals than for nondiabetic animals.

Progress in the development of interpenetrating polymer network hydrogels.
This work has built upon pioneering work in this field as well as in responsive IPN systems to develop an IPN system based on end-linked poly-(ethylene glycol) (PEG) and loosely crosslinked poly(acrylic acid) with hydrogen bond-reinforced strain-hardening behavior in water and high initial Young's moduli under physiologic buffer conditions through osmotically induced pre-stress.
