Tough hydrogels can be synthesized from any hydrophilic polymer by the double-network (DN) concept using a molecular stent. The synthesized St-DN gels have excellent strength and toughness comparable to those of conventional tough DN gels and industrial rubbers. This is a promising method for strengthening various functional hydrogels and increasing the scope of their application in various fields.
