Abstract In this work, a green composite from poly(3-hydroxybutyrate), or P(3HB), grafted with 2-amino-ethyl methacrylate, hydroxylated resin and silica nanoparticles was developed. The goal was to determine if the new poly(urethane-urea) composite can work as an appropriate substrate for biological applications. The mechanism for the polyurea step-growth polymerization was proposed. The scaffolds showed an average porosity and degree of swelling of 55% and 7%, respectively, as well as a reinforced mechanical strength compared to that of P(3HB). This material effectively supported the growth of the mammalian HEK293 cell line, as demonstrated by epifluorescence and confocal microscopy.

Abstract There is a growing need to develop strategies capable of engineering the anisotropic cartilaginous fibrous network in vitro and consequently overcome the anatomical and functional restrictions of the standard medical procedures used for cartilage regeneration. In this work, we suggest a fabrication procedure to build 3D anisotropic multi-layered fibrous scaffolds. Polycaprolactone (PCL) was used as bulk material for the different electrospun layers (horizontally, randomly and vertically...

Abstract Porosity of scaffolds plays an indispensable role in tissue regeneration. In this paper, hierarchical scaffolds with tailored macro/micro-porosity architectures for bone tissue engineering applications were introduced. Poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) has been innovatively blended into poly (lactic acid) (PLA) to fabricate composite filaments for fused deposition modeling (FDM). Customized macropores (pore size > 100 μm) of scaffolds were designed and precisely fabricated by FDM process. Then...

Abstract Background The use of novel materials as an artificial extracellular matrix for stem cell growth is a current strategy of increasing interest for regenerative medicine. Here, we prepare thermal-remolded membrane scaffolds from poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) grafted with 2-amino-ethyl methacrylate hydrochloride. However, it is unclear whether these membranes are useful for tissue engineering. Results The mechanical properties, tribology, and morphology of the dense membranes were assessed. The ...

Abstract Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate- co -4-hydroxybutyrate) (P(3HB-4HB)) co-polymers were produced at bench-scale in fed-batch cultivations by Burkholderia sacchari from glucose (main carbon-source) and gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) as co-substrate. As P(3HB-4HB) properties highly depend on the 4-hydroxybutyrate (4HB) molar fraction, it is advantageous to have a thorough knowledge of the process in order to promote the production of the targeted final product. In this work, polymers with a 4HB molar per...

Abstract Sterilization, cytotoxicity and cell viability are essential properties defining a material for medical applications and these characteristics were investigated for poly(β-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) of 230 kDa obtained by bacterial synthesis from a mutant strain of Azotobacter vinelandii . Cell viability was investigated for two types of PHB scaffolds, solution cast films and non-woven electrospun fibrous membranes, and the efficiency was compared against a culture dish. The biosynthesized ...

Controlling microarchitecture in polymer scaffolds is a priority in material design for soft tissue applications. This paper reports for the first time the elaboration of alginate foam-based scaffolds for mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) delivery and a comparative study of various surfactants on the final device performance. The use of surfactants permitted to obtain highly interconnected porous scaffolds with tunable pore size on surface and in cross-section. Their mechanical properties in compressi...

Abstract The preparation of silica particles by vermicomposting has gained increasing attention for use as an inventive alternative to conventional methods. The silica oxides obtained can be used in a number of technological applications. As of yet, these particles cannot be used efficiently because of the lack of research into the relationship between the bioprocess and the shape and size of the particles. The aim of this study is to synthesize silica particles by red wiggler worms using three ...

Abstract This study aimed at investigating how ice templating conditions affected the shrinkage, the microstructure, and the mechanical properties of cellulose nanofibril (NFC) foams. Enzymatic and TEMPO-oxidized NFC foams were fabricated using two solidification techniques, i.e. , quenching NFC suspensions in temperature-controlled baths, and mechanical stirring of NFC suspensions during solidification followed by quenching, prior to freeze-drying. Foams prepared by direct quenching using stabi...

The design of new synthetic grafted poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) as composite 3D-scaffolds is a convenient alternative for tissue engineering applications. The chemically modified poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) is receiving increasing attention for use as biomimetic copolymers for cell growth. As of yet, these copolymers cannot be used efficiently because of the lack of good mechanical properties. Here, we address this challenge, preparing a composite-scaffold of grafted poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) polyurethane...

Abstract A halophilic bacterium isolated from mangrove soil sample in Northern Vietnam, Yangia sp. ND199 was found capable of producing homopolymer poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) [P(3HB)], copolymer poly(3-hydroxybutyrate- co -3-hydroxyvalerate) [P(3HB- co -3HV)], and copolymer poly(3-hydroxybutyrate- co -4-hydroxybutyrate) [P(3HB- co -4HB)] from different carbon sources. The presence of 3HB, 3HV, and 4HB monomers were confirmed by gas chromatography and nuclear magnetic resonance analysis. Only P(3HB)...

Abstract A novel brush-like poly(2-aminoethyl methacrylate) (PAEMA) was grafted onto chitosan (CS) through gamma radiation-induced polymerization. The copolymer (CS-g-PAEMA) was used to prepare a sodium acetate leached poly(urethane-urea) scaffold. The above derivatives were developed, synthesized, and characterized to meet the specific characteristics of biomaterials. The results revealed that this method is an easy and successful route for grafting PAEMA onto CS. The feasibility of preparing a...

Abstract This work aims to study the bio-interfacial properties of poly(ester-urethane) composite scaffolds based on poly (3-hydroxybutyrate) [PHB] and modified by surface plasma-radiation-induced graft polymerization of N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPAAm). The delivering power of the Argon radio-frequency plasma was increased from 5−20 W. The yields over the polyurethane surface, grafting density, topographical dimensions, architecture, surface energy, and wettability were surveyed in the establishe...

Abstract A critical-sized calvarial defect in rats is employed to reveal the osteoinductive properties of biomaterials. In this study, we investigate the osteogenic efficiency of hybrid scaffolds based on composites of a biodegradable and biocompatible polymer, poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) with hydroxyapatite (HA) filled with alginate (ALG) hydrogel containing mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) on the regeneration of the critical-sized radial defect of the parietal bone in rats. The scaffolds based ...

Abstract Both chitosan (CS) and poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (P(3HB)) are two good options for use in tissue engineering. Some of the advantages of these polymers are biodegradability and non-toxicity. However, the inadequate mechanical properties and hydrophobicity (P3HB) and the low porosity (CS) are examples of shortcomings that restrict its applications. The polysaccharide was grafted onto P(3HB) in a previous work for removing these disadvantages. As of yet, it is still unknown whether our P(3HB...
