Sugar-Based Low Molecular Weight Hydrogels from Alkyl Glycolipids
University of Arizona researchers have created sugar-based low molecular weight hydrogels that spontaneously self-assemble through weak, noncovalent intermolecular interactions. These gels are thixotropic, biocompatible, and biodegradable. Despite being held together through non-covalent interactions, these hydrogels exhibit greater mechanical strength...

Nanoparticles for UV-Free Activation of Photochemical Reactions
This technology involves the implementation of materials and methods that allows activation of photochemical reactions using safe, near-infrared radiation. This "silent" near infrared (NIR) to UV upconversion can be incorporated in many promising technologies currently deemed unsafe or incompatible with biomedical use by eliminating residual...

Injectable Protein-Based Hydrogels with Ligand-Mediated Reinforcement for Long-Term In Vivo Applications
This technology is a protein-based hydrogel that uses cross-links to self-assemble after injection. The technology addresses the issue with in vivo use of hydrogels by merging the biocompatability of a protein hydrogel with a reinforced rupture force typically found in chemical hydrogels. An injectable hydrogel with these properties has immense potential...

Underwater Adhesives
This technology provides a method for underwater adhesion through the use of a masked compound that, when exposed to water, forms covalent bonds with surfaces containing phenols. Background: It is extremely difficult to repair cracked or broken surfaces that are exposed to water (i.e. boat hulls, swimming pools, human tissues, etc.) without the...

Smart Textile to Predict Diabetic Foot Ulcer
This invention is a movable, washable smart textile that can measure abnormalities in pressure and temperature when a patient walks on it. The textile can analyze the data and send alerts to the patient when abnormalities suggest the presence of diabetic foot ulcers (DFU) and/or the likelihood of falls or other injuries. Background: Demand for new...
