An intrinsically stabilized hydrazone crosslinked extracellular matrix (ECM) mimetic hyaluronan hydrogel exhibits controlled swelling, slow enzymatic degradation, and excellent mechanical properties. These properties are achieved by fine tuning the electronic character around the hydrazone linkage. This tailored ECM mimetic hydrogel demonstrates efficient recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 mediated ectopic bone formation in vivo, with oriented collagen and angiogenesis.
