In this project, an injectable hydrogel was prepared through polymer synthesis, and several properties were characterized. It showed thermosensitive property because of the existence of poly (N-Isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM)[3], which made it injectable as PNIPAM-based hydrogels would gel at body temperature. Also, the introduction of dopamine and coated silver nanoparticles could provide anti-bacterial property which could potentially used for would dressing.
