Abstract

Chitosan, β-glycerophosphate, and glycerol are all biocompatible materials for biomedical application. This work successfully developed a thermosensitive hydrogel composed of CS, β-GP and glycerol. The CS/β-GP/glycerol hydrogel can be made as a transparent solution at room temperature and becomes an opaque and turbid hydrogel after heating. The transmission of visible light at different temperature can be measured by a visible micro spectrophotometer combined with a precise temperature control of the demountable liquid cell. A tunable transmission of visible light hydrogel was developed. Moreover, the composition of such hydrogel is safely used and it is potential for biomedical applications.
