Abstract

Obtaining high strength hydrogels with good biocompatibility and identifiability is a challenging task. Herein, a new approach is presented that enables the simple one-pot synthesis of a high strength polymer hydrogel on the basis of silicone, poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA) and an Eu(III) organic complex. The composition and properties of the hydrogel could be easily tuned because of the good solubility of the monomers and non-interfering polymerization processes. The hydrogel exhibits an excellent integrated performance with toughness, high resilience, biocompatibility, and identifiability.
