Interpenetrating Network Hydrogels and their Photochemical Modification


Stanford Reference:

07-019


Abstract


An interdisciplinary team of Stanford University researchers have developed a novel interpenetrating polymer network hydrogel that is useful for a wide variety of medical, industrial and personal hygiene applications. The material is simultaneously mechanically strong, biocompatible, and highly water-absorbent. In addition, surface modifications can be used to attach biomolecules to the hydrogel.

Applications


  • Ophthalmic Implants

Advantages


  • Mechanically strong - high tensile and compressive strength
  • Low coefficient of friction - high surface lubricity
  • Hydrophilic:
    • 60 - 90% water content
    • high swellability
  • High permeability
  • Optical transparency
  • Biocompatibility
