We report a robust method to manufacture polyacrylamide-based functional hydrogel microspheres with readily tunable macroporous structures by utilizing a simple micromolding-based technique. Specifically, surface tension-induced droplet formation of aqueous solutions of chitosan and acrylamide in 2D-shaped micromolds followed by photoinduced polymerization leads to monodisperse microspheres. Pore sizes of the microspheres can be readily tuned by simple addition of inert long-chain poly(ethylene… CONTINUE READING
