Metal Ion Augmented Mussel Inspired Polydopamine Immobilized 3D Printed Osteoconductive Scaffolds for Accelerated Bone Tissue Regeneration

ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces 2022 Volume 14, Issue 25, Pages 28455-28475

Critical bone defects with a sluggish rate of auto-osteoconduction and imperfect reconstruction are motivators for the development of an alternate innovative approach for the regeneration of bone. Tissue engineering for bone regeneration signifies an advanced way to overcome this problem by creating an additional bone tissue substitute. Among different fabrication techniques, the 3D printing technique is obviously the most efficient and advanced way to fabricate an osteoconductive scaffold with a controlled porous structure. In the current article, the polycarbonate and polyester diol based polyurethane–urea (P12) was synthesized and 3D porous nanohybrid scaffolds (P12/TP-nHA) were fabricated using the 3D printing technique…

Turbulence-induced formation of emulsion gels

Ultrasonics Sonochemistry 2021 Volume 81, Article 105847

Emulsion gels have a wide range of applications. We report on a facile and versatile method to produce stable emulsion gels with tunable rheological properties. Gel formation is triggered by subjecting a mixture containing aqueous colloidal particle (CP) suspensions and water-immiscible liquids to intense turbulence, generated by low frequency (20 kHz) ultrasound or high-pressure homogenization. Through systematic investigations, requisite gel formation criteria are established with respect to both formulation and processing, including ratio/type of liquid pairs, CP properties, and turbulence conditions. Based on the emulsion microstructure and rheological properties, inter-droplet bridging and CP void-filling are proposed as universal stabilization mechanisms.…
