Abstract

In this study, we prepared hydrogels composed of poly(allylurea) copolymers that exhibited UCST-type phase separation behaviour. This is the first example of a hydrogel showing a positive thermo-sensitive volume change under physiologically relevant conditions. Of interest, no hysteresis was observed between cooling and heating swelling changes. This journal is
