Amphiphilic hydrogel nanoparticles, composed of covalently cross-linked Pluronic F127 and PEG, exhibit a temperature- and concentration-dependent gelation in water which is interpreted as a colloidal glass formation. The possible applications of these phenomena in biomaterials and controlled release are also discussed.
