Hydrolys av porösa nanodiamant partikel modifierade PLLA och PCL för tissue engineering (Swedish)
Nanodiamonds are considered a very prospective material for modification of different materials for medical devices. Such modification allows to improve biocompatibility, mechanical and other properties of polymeric materials for medicine and particularly for tissue engineering.
In current study influence of modification with nanodiamonds on properties and degradation behavior of polymeric scaffolds for tissue engineering was investigated. Scaffolds were fabricated by solvent casting/particulate leaching from poly-L-lactide and poly-ɛ-caprolactone. Modification was done by penetration of received scaffolds in nanodiamonds/water sole. For examining of changes in different properties following methods were used: Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, Size Exclusion Chromatography, Differential Scanning Calorimetry, Scanning Electron Microscopy, and Tensile Test.
