Bone fractures are today scabilized with screws and metal plates. More complicated Fractures require alternative treatments that exclude harsh surgical conditions. By adapting the benign and UV initiated thiol-ene reaction, we efficiently fabricated triazine-based, fiber-reinforced adhesive patches within 2 s. To enhance their bone adhesion properties, we found that a pre-treatment step of bone surfaces with phenolic dopamine and poly(parahydroxystyrene) compounds was successful. The latter display the greatest E-module of 3.4 MPa in shear strength. All patches exhibited low cytotoxicity and can therefore find potential use in future treatments of bone fractures.
