Fabrication of chitosan/poly(ε-caprolactone) composite hydrogels for tissue engineering applications.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to fabricate three-dimensional (3D) porous chitosan/poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) hydrogels with improved mechanical properties for tissue engineering applications. A modified emulsion lyophilisation technique was developed to produce 3D chitosan/PCL hydrogels. The addition of 25 and 50 wt% of PCL into chitosan substantially enhanced… (More)
