Abstract

<p>Hybrid hydrogels composed of hyaluronic acid (HA) and halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) were prepared via photocrosslinking of HA and HNTs functionalized with vinyl groups. These hybrid hydrogels showed enhanced mechanical properties without sacrificing good swelling capability, which is crucial for biomedical applications.</p>
