The need for robust and responsive hydrogels in numerous pharmaceutical, biomedical, and industrial applications has motivated intense research efforts in these important polymeric materials. [ 1–6 ] The defi ning feature of hydrogels is that the vast majority of their mass consists of water, yet they still exhibit solid-like mechanical properties due to the presence of a three-dimensional network structure that, classically, is created through in situ covalent bond formation between… Expand
Ultrahigh-water-content supramolecular hydrogels exhibiting multistimuli responsiveness.
TLDR
The preparation of extremely high water content hydrogels driven by strong host-guest complexation with cucurbit[8]uril (CB[8]) allows for rapid self-healing of the materials after damage caused by deformation. Expand
A family of mechanically adaptive supramolecular graphene oxide/poly(ethylenimine) hydrogels from aqueous assembly.
TLDR
This paper demonstrates a simple route to generate a family of GO-based hydrogels from aqueous solution based assembly of GO with polycationic poly(ethylenimine), PEI, without any secondary chemical crosslinking and demonstrates that this strategy is generalizable to other anionic 2D materials such as clay.

High-water-content mouldable hydrogels by mixing clay and a dendritic molecular binder
TLDR
It is reported that water and clay, when mixed with a very small proportion of organic components, quickly form a transparent hydrogel, which can be moulded into shape-persistent, free-standing objects owing to its exceptionally great mechanical strength, and rapidly and completely self-heals when damaged.
