A mechanically robust hydrogel with thermally induced plasticity and a shape memory effect

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new class of smart structural hydrogels is prepared by introducing dual cross-linkers into a single-network system. The present hydrogel, on the one hand, exhibits excellent mechanical properties; on the other hand, it exhibits thermally induced plasticity and a shape memory effect without any overlap.
