Abstract

Fabrication of a composite scaffold of nanobioglass (n‐BG) 45S5 and poly(3‐hydroxyocatnoate), P(3HO) was studied for the first time with the aim of developing a novel, multifunctional wound dressing. The incorporation of n‐BG accelerated blood clotting time and its incorporation in the polymer matrix enhanced the wettability, surface roughness and bio‐compatibility of the scaffold.
