Recent Progress of Graphene-Containing Polymer Hydrogels: Preparations, Properties, and Applications
Guangjie Gai, Libin Liu, Chenguang Pan
Polymer hydrogels have attracted much attention due to their mechanical, biological, and physicochemical properties. Incorporation of functional material enlarges their applications. Graphene, as a promising additive, has received great attention due to its large specific surface area, ultrahigh conductivity, strong antioxidant, thermal stability, high thermal conductivity, and good mechanical properties. In this brief review, graphene-containing polymer hydrogels with special properties are summarized including their preparations, properties, and applications. In addition, future perspectives of polymer hydrogels containing graphene are briefly discussed. Polymer–graphene hydrogels have attracted much attention and introduction of graphene could enable the composite hydrogel with excellent properties in various respects. In this brief review, graphene-containing polymer hydrogels with special properties are summarized including their preparations, properties, and applications. In addition, future perspectives of polymer hydrogels containing graphene are briefly discussed.
