Application of high performance hydrogels in tissue engineering and supercapacitors
MetadataShow full item record
Hydrogels, gels that mainly consist of water, have found their way in numerous applications. Hydrogels are currently under extensive research in the research fields such as tissue engineering, conductive/unconducive biosensors, bio-actuators, and energy storage devices. In the present text, the application of hydrogels in 3D bioprinting for tissue engineering as well as the application of thin film hydrogels in energy storage devices are investigated. To this end, a specific 3D bioprintable hydrogel for fabrication of tissue engineering scaffolds and thin film electrodes for use in supercapacitors were developed.
