The Polymer group of the Faculty of Technology and Metallurgy University of Belgrade deals with environment-sensitive hydrogel as carriers for biomedical applications, including drug delivery, wound healing, and regenerative medicine. The first hydrogel generation synthesized in our labs was discs made of polyacrylamide and its derivatives. The synthesis was at higher temperatures (50 °C), with traditional crosslinker, N, N’-methylenebisacrylamide, and persulphate/pyrosulphate as initiator.
