PCL microspheres featuring a macroporous morphology and a bone-bioactive surface have been prepared. 'Camphene' was introduced to generate pores within the microsphere network. The pore size was variable from a few to tens to hundreds of microm depending on the Camphene/PCL ratio. Macropores (with sizes >50 microm) could be obtained with a Camphene/PCL ratio exceeding 6. The microsphere surface was further tailored with apatite mineral phase through solution-mediated precipitation, to endow the… CONTINUE READING
