Supplementary Material

The supplementary data contains two tables that explore the results of the data in further detail. Table S1 shows all the data points for Figure 5 in tabular form as well as the UV exposure times and intensities used to calculate the total energy values. Table S2 compares the Young’s modulus values of two PAA hydrogel compositions made using both UV-polymerization and free-radical initiation.
