Functional modification of agarose: A facile synthesis of a fluorescent agarose-tryptophan based hydrogel

• Agarose and tryptophan based fluorescent hydrogel material (Ag-TrpEst) was synthesized via carbodiimide chemistry. • Ag-TrpEst was cross linked with genipin to produce blue coloured hydrogel. • Both the Ag-TrpEst and G-Ag-TrpEst hydrogels exhibited comparable gel strengths to those of agarose gel....
