Autonomous self-healing of poly(acrylic acid) hydrogels induced by the migration of ferric ions

Author affiliations

Abstract

A facile and versatile strategy was developed for the preparation of self-healing hydrogels containing double networks of both physically and chemically cross-linked polymers. The autonomous self-healing of the hydrogel was achieved through the dynamic bonding of physical cross-linking and the migration of ferric ions.
