Use of Polymeric Plasticizers in Polyvinyl Chloride to Reduce Conventional Plasticizer Migration for Critical Applications
Di-(2-ethyl hexyl) phthalate (DEHP), a conventional plasticizer in polyvinyl chloride (PVC), was partially replaced by polymeric plasticizers. Three different elastomers such as nitrile rubber (NBR),
Nanohydroxyapatite incorporated electrospun polycaprolactone/polycaprolactone-polyethyleneglycol-polycaprolactone blend scaffold for bone tissue engineering applications.
The results reveal the potential of the cytocompatible PCL/CEC/nHAP scaffold for the fabrication of living bony constructs for tissue engineering applications.
Microstructured microspheres of hydroxyapatite bioceramic
Hydroxyapatite particles having spherical geometry and 125–1000 μm in size range were prepared using a solid-in-water- in-oil (S/W/O) emulsion, cross-linking technique and the percentage yield and size distributions of the spheres were determined.
Hydroxyapatite filled chitosan-polyacrylic acid polyelectrolyte complexes
Chitosan (CHI) has been complexed with polyacrylic acid (PAA) in the presence of hydroxyapatite (HAP) to prepare composites intended for bone substitute applications. Thermogravimetric analysis of
Synthesis, characterization and biocompatibility studies of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods for biomedical application
Nanoparticles are increasingly being recognized for their potential utility in biological applications including nanomedicine. Here, we have synthesized zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods using zinc acetate
Biomimetic approaches with smart interfaces for bone regeneration
This review aims to investigate the fundamental and favourable requirements of a ‘smart tissue interface’ that can positively influence the degree of healing and promote bone tissue regeneration.
Hybrid polycaprolactone/polyethylene oxide scaffolds with tunable fiber surface morphology, improved hydrophilicity and biodegradability for bone tissue engineering applications
The study revealed that incorporation of PEO on PCL scaffolds complemented the properties of PCL and facilitated fabrication of scaffolds with improved hydrophilicity, mechanical property and tunable degradation profile with better cell viability which makes it an ideal candidate for bone tissue engineering applications.
