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.
