Novel injectable and photo-crosslinkable poly(propylene fumarate) (PPF)-co-polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) copolymers are synthesized to improve both stiffness and toughness and to promote biological performance of bone tissue engineering scaffolds. The mechanical properties with the non-monotonic dependence on weight compositions of POSS are correlated with mouse pre-osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cell attachment, spreading, proliferation, differentiation, and gene expression.
