Poly(ε-caprolactone) scaffolds of highly controlled porosity and interconnectivity derived from co-continuous polymer blends: model bead and cell infiltration behavior.

Abstract

Porous structures destined for tissue engineering applications should ideally show controlled and narrow pore size distributions with fully interconnected pores. This study focuses on the development of novel poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) structures with fully connected pores of 84, 116, 141, and 162 μm average diameter, from melt blending of PCL with poly… (More)
