Conductive hydrogels have shown great potential in the field of flexible strain sensors. However, their application is greatly limited due to the low conductivity and poor mechanical properties at subzero temperatures. Herein, an ultrastretchable, tough, antifreezing, and conductive cellulose hydrogel was fabricated by grafting acrylonitrile and acrylamide copolymers onto the cellulose chains in the presence of zinc chloride using ceric ammonium nitrate as the initiator. The resulting hydrogel exhibited ultrastretchability (1730%), excellent tensile strength (160 kPa), high elasticity (90%), good toughness (1074.7 kJ/m3), and fatigue resistance property due to the existence of dipole-dipole and multiple hydrogen-bonding interactions on the hydrogel network. In addition, the introduced zinc chloride endowed the cellulose-based hydrogel with remarkable electric conductivity (1.54 S/m) and excellent antifreezing performance (-33 °C). Finally, the hydrogel showed high sensitivity and stability to monitor human activities. In summary, this work presented a facile strategy to construct conductive hydrogel with excellent antifreezing and mechanical properties simultaneously, which showed great potential for wearable strain sensors.

In this work, gold embedded chitosan nanoparticles (Au@CS NPs) were fabricated by a one-pot method. The benzaldehyde-terminated poly[(2-methacryloyloxy) ethyl phosphorylcholine] (PMPC) was applied to modification of the gold doped chitosan nanoparticles. The obtained Au@CS-PMPC NPs had the diameter of 135 nm with a narrow distribution. The size of the Au@CS-PMPC NPs, as well as the size of the embedded gold NPs, might be well-controlled by adjusting the feeding ratio between chitosan and HAuCl4. Furthermore, the Au@CS-PMPC NPs showed increased colloidal stability, high drug loading content, pH-responsive drug release, excellent biocompatibility and bright fluorescence emission. The results demonstrated that Au@CS-PMPC NPs showed a great potential for tumor therapy via the combination advantages of pH-sensitive controlled drug release and cellular fluorescence imaging.
