Abstract: Stimuli-responsive gels undergo swelling-shrinking changes in response to external stimuli such as pH, temperature, etc. Unique properties of the stimuli-responsive gels have provided many potential applications as intelligent materials used in fields such as medicine, agriculture, biotechnology, etc. This paper provides a short overview of recent researches on design and applications of various stimuli-responsive gels. Many researchers have developed a variety of pH-, temperature-, molecule-responsive gels for constructing intelligent biomaterials and self-regulated drug delivery systems. Recent stimuli-responsive gels were prepared by using designed polymer chains or biomolecules. In addition, molecular imprinting has been applied to design the structures and functions of stimuli-responsive gels. Even though most stimuli-responsive gels still require further research before practical application, they are likely to become quite important materials in the near future.
