Abstract

Flow lithography, a versatile technique to synthesize anisotropic multifunctional microparticles, generates hydrogel networks containing a considerable number of unconverted double bonds. These unconverted pendant groups are highly reactive, potentially bringing physicochemical changes in particles and pernicious effects to biological systems. Herein, we validate that the hydrogel networks synthesized via flow lithography bear unconverted double bonds and present a simple method that can be used to eliminate the unconverted double bonds based on thiol-ene click chemistry.
