  • Hydrogels have emerged as smart nanomaterials and have shown great potential in biomedical applications. They have gained recent attention because of their three-dimensional network and their features which are responsive to various external stimuli. These smart materials are being significantly explored for their advanced application in bone and knee replacement technology, dental applications, and, most importantly, sensing and diagnostics management. This chapter highlights recent advancements in hydrogels as nanomaterials and their application in sensing and diagnostics.
