Ultrathin tough double network hydrogels showing adjustable muscle-like isometric force generation triggered by solvent

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ultrathin double-network hydrogels, which have super-high toughness under micro-scale thickness (elastic elongation εb > 1000%, tensile strength σb > 2 MPa and tearing energy G ∼ 600 J m−2), and solvent-triggered fast and high isometric stress generation, were synthesized by coupling the salt-controlled swelling process and polymer chain pre-reinforced technique.
