Synthesis of a novel polysaccharide hydrogel


Journal Article

A modified hyaluronic acid (HA) biopolymer was synthesized that can be photocrosslinked to form a stable hydrogel. The chemical and physical properties including the amount of modification of the polymer with methacrylate anhydride, the viscosity of the modified biopolymer, and the solute diffusion characteristics of the polymer have been determined.
