Photocrosslinkable chitosan hydrogels and their biomedical applications

Pei, Minjie; Mao, Jun; Xu, Weilin; Zhou, Yingshan; Xiao, Pu


Chitosan is a bioactive macromolecule with a wide variety of applications due to its excellent biological properties such as biodegradability, biocompatibility, and antibacterial activity, and so forth. This highlight focuses on the preparation of photoactive chitosans, the formation of photocrosslinkable chitosan hydrogels, and the related photopolymerization mechanisms. Moreover, the great potential applications of photocrosslinkable chitosan hydrogels for human tissues are also discussed.
