This thesis presents the development of entropy-elastic gelatin based networks in the form of films or scaffolds. The materials have good prospects for biomedical applications, especially in the context of bone regeneration. Entropy-elastic gelatin based hydrogel films with varying crosslinking densities were prepared with tailored mechanical properties. Gelatin was covalently crosslinked in water above its sol gel transition, which suppressed the gelatin chain helicity. Amorphous films were… 

Development and characterization of PVA based hydrogel for cartilage tissue scaffold

This study investigates the characteristics of knee cartilage hydrogel of Poly(vinyl)alcohol (PVA) based scaffolds which fabricated with different proportion of gelatin and Polycaprolactone (PCL)

Solubilization of bovine gelatin using power ultrasound: gelation without heating.

The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of power ultrasound without using any heating stage in solubilizeing gelatin dispersions, and to characterize the mechanical and microstructural
