Investigation of the Diels–Alder reaction as a cross-linking mechanism for degradable poly(ethylene glycol) based hydrogels

Kirchhof, Susanne ; Brandl, Ferdinand ; Hammer, Nadine ; Göpferich, Achim


The Diels–Alder (DA) reaction was investigated as a cross-linking mechanism for poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) based hydrogels. Two complementary macromonomers were synthesized by functionalizing star-shaped PEG with furyl and maleimide groups. Gel formation occurred in water at 37 °C; the gelation time ranged between 171 ± 25 min and 14 ± 1 min depending on the used hydrogel formulation. The ...
