Abstract

Poly-N-isopropylacrylamide (PNIPAAm) is a new kind of intelligent material. It shows favorable thermo sensitivity because of the structure of hydrophilic acrylamino and hydrophobic isopropyl. PNIPAAm also shows good biocompatibility and non-toxicity. All the characters as above make it an ideal extra cellular matrix material for tissue engineering. This paper reviews its application in tissue engineering.
