Abstract In order for a material to be considered a potential candidate as a scaffolding substrate, it should be biodegradable to non-toxic products, and possess similar physical characteristics to those of the living tissue being replaced. Previous work centered on the direct linkage of citronellol, an anti-inflammatory molecule, to a polyphosphazene backbone. Moreover, the hydrolysis rate in that study was tuned by incorporating alanine ethyl ester co-substituent units thereby decreasing the… CONTINUE READING
