This study investigated the effect of the addition of sol-gel derived nanoscale bioactive glass (NBG) particles on the mechanical properties and biological performances of PCL polymer, in order to evaluate the potential applications of PCL/NBG composites for bone tissue regeneration. Regardless of the NBG contents (10, 20, and 30 wt.%), the NBG particles, which were synthesized through the sol-gel process using polyethylene glycol (PEG) polymer as a template, could be uniformly dispersed in the… CONTINUE READING
