Gels for cells: Hybrid nanogels (see image) that are easily taken up by living cells are prepared with colloidal and temperature-sensitive properties. Integration of reactive nanoparticles (NPs) into the colloidal network during polymerization reduces the colloid dimensions and creates a core–shell structure that isolates the NPs from the surrounding environment.
