According to recent research from the United States, "Regenerative medicine requires scaffolds of divergent physicochemical properties for different tissue-engineering applications."
"To this end, a series of biodegradable poly(phosphoester) ionomers of the general composition [p(BHET-EOP-HOP/TC)] was synthesized, with BHET(bis-hydroxyl ethylene phosphate):EOP(ethylene phosphate): HOP(free phosphate) ratios of 60:20:20, 70:10:20, and 75:5:20, respectively.
"The 60/20/20 ionomer possessed the best tensile properties," A.C.A. Wan and colleagues...
