A tough and ductile, ultrathin film, double-network (DN), biopolymer-based hydrogel displaying the yielding phenomenon was synthesized from methacrylated chondroitin sulfate (MCS) and polyacrylamide (PAAm). The DN of MCS/PAAm exhibited a failure stress more than 20 times greater than the single network (SN) of either MCS or PAAm and exhibited yielding stresses over 1500 kPa. In addition, the stress–strain behavior with a yielding region was also seen in a hydrogel of MCS and poly(N,N-dimethyl acrylamide) (PDMAAm). By replacing PAAm with PDMAAm, interactions known to toughen networks are removed. This demonstration supports the idea that the brittle/ductile combination is key to the DN effect over specific interactions between the networks. The MCS/PAAm and MCS/PDMAAm DN hydrogels had comparable mechanical properties to the archtypal DN hydrogels of poly(2-acrylamido-2-methylpropanesulfonic acid) (PAMPS)/PAAm. In addition, these tough and ductile, biopolymer-based, double-network hydrogels demonstrated a s...
