High antibacterial and skin-like hydrogels have always been the perfect wound dressing for human to protect wound from infection. Here, based on silk sericin, we design a series of nanoclay lithium magnesium silicate hydrate (LMSH) cross-linked semi-IPN sericin/poly(NIPAm/LMSH) (HSP) nanocomposite hydrogels and demonstrate advantages in serving as antibacterial wound dressing in comparison with gauze. Firstly, the effect of mass ratios of sericin/(sericin+NIPAm) upon pore structure, feasibility… CONTINUE READING
