Preparation, Bioactivity, and Drug Release of Hierarchical Nanoporous Bioactive Glass Ultrathin Fibers



original image

Hierarchical nanoporous bioactive glass ultrathin fibers with different pore diameters from 1.5-nm micropores up to 65-nm macropores are synthesized using P123–PEO co-templates and an electrospinning technique (see image). Experiments demonstrate that the prepared bioactive glass fibers are highly homogenous and bioactive and their nanopores can control drug release well.
