Hollow hydrogel networks for temperature-controlled water fluidics

Abstract

We report the first example of a simple, yet robust, reproducible and scalable method for direct conversion of sodium alginate (SA) films to multibranched hydrogel tubes (HTs) in “one-pot” reaction of buffered aqueous solution. This method allows for construction of branched hollow HTs of any shape and arbitrary size, and enables further functionalization for application requirements.
