NotesHighlights: • A new tri-component gel based on gellan gum, glycerol and halloysite is proposed. • The nanocomposite hydrogel has tuneable mechanical and biocompatible features. • The physico-chemical characterization reveals the gel morphology and composition. • The developed hydrogel is suitable for soft tissue engineering applications.
