  • * Qualitative measure of performance based on overall material properties and propensity for rapid self-healing following shear thinning, whereby - - is worst and ++ is best along a four-point scale.

  • Qualitative measure of hydrogel stability after 1 wk storage at room temperature assessing retention of functional performance and stability against syneresis, whereby - - is worst and ++ is best along a four-point scale.
