A novel and modular strategy has been developed for the preparation of reactive and functionalized hydrogels. In this strategy, thiol-epoxy coupling chemistry was employed for the formation of a hydrophilic network. The hydroxyl groups, generated during the coupling process, were then engaged in anchoring a fluorescent probe to the hydrogel scaffold.
