Han Shih and Chien-Chi Lin Visible-Light-Mediated Thiol-Ene Hydrogelation Using Eosin-Y as the Only Photoinitiator Macromolecular Rapid Communications 34
A visible-light-mediated hydrogelation scheme is developed for preparing step-growth thiol-ene hydrogels. Eosin-Y is utilized as the sole photoinitiator without adding any cytotoxic components to achieve rapid and tunable gelation. The resulting thiol-ene hydrogels are cytocompatible to human mesenchymal stem cells and pancreatic MIN6 β-cells.
