Hyaluronan hydrogels can function as a matrix to incorporate both organic and inorganic substances to enhance tissue growth. Here, a hyaluronan scaffold that has demonstrated good biocompatibility and is used to induce bone regeneration is structurally characterized using small-angle neutron scattering. This technique is sensitive enough to be applied to determine the organization of the polymer chains in situ. The information drawn from the scattering data is correlated to the physical properties and applications of the gels.
