Ultrastrong and flexible hybrid hydrogels based on solution self-assembly of chitin nanofibers in gelatin methacryloyl (GelMA)

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrate the formation of ultrastrong and flexible hydrogels via self-assembly of chitin nanofibers in the presence of gelatin methacryloyl. We tune the mechanical properties of the hydrogel using the chitin nanofiber content and show proof-of-concept applications in engineering vascular tissues.
