In this paper, a facile way has been proposed to prepare transparent, tough and flexible polyacrylamide (PAM) hydrogels which is composed of a dually crosslinked single network by chemical crosslinking of N,N′methylenebisacrylamide (BIS) and physical crosslinking of hydrophilic hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanosheets. invasion of VSMC into MMP-14 selective peptide crosslinked hydrogels was diametrically opposite in nature to that of fibroblasts whereby VSMC showed a two-fold increase into
