ABSTRACT:
Porous gelatin-alginate scaffolds of different compositional ratio of alginate and gelatin with proper crosslinking and interconnections of pores were manufactured by using freeze-drying technology, and their porous structure was examined by using microscopy and the best scaffold having the optimum porosity and interconnection of pores was characterized by scanning electron microscopy. Scaffolds with high porosity were obtained and proper interconnection of pores was obtained using the freeze drying technique.
KEYWORDS:
