Bio-inspired mineral fluorescent hydrogels cross-linked by amorphous rare earth carbonates

Author affiliations

Abstract

The bio-inspired mineral plastic hydrogel based on calcium carbonate and polyacrylic acid has been recently investigated as a promising sustainable material. Here we report that rare earth carbonates can act as cross-linkers to fabricate analogous hydrogels and provide remarkable optical properties.
