Tailoring drug release profile of low-molecular-weight hydrogels by supramolecular co-assembly and thiol–ene orthogonal coupling

Author affiliations

Abstract

We describe a general user-friendly platform for fine-tuning the drug release properties of low-molecular-weight hydrogels by a combination of supramolecular co-assembly of complementary molecular structures and controlled photochemical thiol–ene cross-linking. Other critical features such as thermomechanical stability and morphology of the nanostructured hydrogels are also tailored by this approach.
