Supracolloidal Assemblies as Sacrificial Templates for Porous Silk-Based Biomaterials.

Kaplan, David, 1953-

  • Tissues in the body are hierarchically structured composite materials with tissue-specific properties. Urea self-assembles via hydrogen bonding interactions into crystalline supracolloidal assemblies that can be used to impart macroscopic pores to polymer-based tissue scaffolds. In this communication, we explain the solvent interactions governing the solubility of urea and thereby the scope of ... read more
