Title: Hydrogels based on cellulose and chitin: fabrication, properties, and applications

Abstract

A review of the synthesis and applications of renewable, biocompatible, and biodegradable hydrogels made from cellulose, chitin, and some of their derivatives indicates increased attention due to their excellent processability, high absorbency, porosity, bioactivity, and abundant active groups.
