Biodegradable polymer/bioceramic composite scaffolds can overcome the limitations of conventional ceramic bone substitutes such as brittleness and difficulty in shaping. However, conventional methods for fabricating polymer/bioceramic composite scaffolds often use organic solvents (e.g., the solvent casting and particulate leaching (SC/PL)...

Dendrimers are just one class of nano-sized materials that are explored to develop new life-saving technologies. Single-wall carbon nanotubes are used to make miniaturized sensors for DNA, pathogens, and chemicals – for example glucose sensors. Multi-wall nanotubes, nanoclays, and ceramic nanoparticles are incorporated in ultra-strong polymer nanocomposites that will be used in orthopedic, for example joint-replacement, applications.
