Why is it important?

The results show this new scaffold material exhibits improved physical and mechanical properties (Young’s modulus of 5.1 MPa and elastic strength of 0.25 MPa). Also, it is nontoxic.


The results from this new nanocomposite scaffold material show that is possible to improve the physical and mechanical properties further and and explore applications in vivo.
