Nanoporous silk fibroin (SF) films were prepared as SF film loaded with methoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-b-poly(D,L-lactide) (MPEG-b-PDLL) nanoparticles by film casting of MPEG-b-PDLL nanoparticle suspension-SF solution. Nanoporous structures of the SF films were formed due to self-condensation and nanophase separation of nanoparticles from SF film matrix during drying process. The films with SF/MPEG-b-PDLL ratios of 20/1, 20/2 and 20/3 (w/w) were prepared and investigated. The MPEG-b-PDLL… CONTINUE READING
