A high stiffness bio-inspired hydrogel from the combination of a poly(amido amine) dendrimer with DOPA

Author affiliations

Abstract

A robust biodegradable hydrogel is constructed from two components containing G4.0 PAMAM and DOPA, which displays excellent interconnected porous 3D networks, higher mechanical strength, low and stable swelling and good biocompatibility. A mouse CSD model in vivo evidences that moderate bone-like tissue and extensive bony tissue are observed when the hydrogel is implanted.
