"Hydrogels are comprised of networks polymer chains that are hydrophilic, in which water is the dispersion medium. They are highly absorbent and can contain over 99.9% water within natural or synthetic polymers. Hydrogel materials also possess a degree of flexibility very similar to natural tissue, due to their significant water content. Common uses known in the art include scaffolds in tissue engineering in which the hydrogels contain human cells to repair tissue or are used for cell culture. Environmentally sensitive hydrogels are also known as 'Smart Gels' or 'Intelligent Gels' and these have the ability to sense changes of pH, temperature, or the concentration of metabolite and release the active drug or other incorporated materian as result of such a change. As such they are useful as sustained-release drug delivery systems and other uses where water absorbtion and retention is important."
