Dr. Patrick van Rijn’s team has released an article derived from the work of the Personalized triggered release of antimicrobials from implant surfaces (TRAM) project.
In the article, the authors described a method to provide the successful formation of dynamic covalent cross-linked hydrogel microstructures based on ketone and amine-functionalized nanogels using Pickering emulsions. This method could contribute to generate porous microstructures where excluded, isolated cavities can be created in which storage, protection, and overall mechanical properties can be tuned.
