The gradation of porosity in a biomaterial can be very useful for a variety of medical engineering applications such as filtration, bone replacement and implant development. However, the preparation of such structures is not a technologically trivial task and replication methods do not offer an easy solution. In this work, we elucidate the preparation of(More)
A novel fabrication technique, a combination of slurry dipping and electrospraying, was used to produce hydroxyapatite foams as potential matrices for bone tissue engineering applications. In this study, scaffolds that were slurry dipped and electrosprayed for different time intervals were compared with foams prepared by the individual methods of dipping(More)
Porous scaffolds are considered a key strategy in the concept of bone tissue engineering. Hydroxyapatite, which is a bioceramic has been used as a popular scaffold material due to its bioactive and osteoconductive properties. A combination of slurry-dipping and electrospraying has been used as a new foam fabrication method to produce porous and(More)
Porous scaffolds play a key role in tissue engineering (TE) approaches and new processing methods and materials are constantly being developed to cater for the wide range of specifications and requirements. Electrospraying is a relatively new processing method used for producing open-pore scaffolds. In this work, the electrospraying technique was(More)
