A silica reinforcement can improve the mechanical properties of hydrogels in the rubbery state. A method to prepare a scaffold with a well-ordered array of cylindrical pores is presented in this work, which yields a scaffold with a biphasic matrix of a hybrid nanocomposite: the hydrogel poly(2-hydroxyethyl acrylate) (PHEA) and a silica network obtained by… CONTINUE READING
