Abstract

Bioactive glasses are ideal materials for bone scaffolds due to their bioactivity, biodegradability, and bone regeneration properties. Along with the correct composition of the biomaterial, the design of the scaffold is important. The development of 3Dprintinghas facilitated the ability to produce complex 3D scaffolds. This thesis aims to develop porous 3D-printed bioactive ceramic scaffolds with excellent bioactivity, biodegradability, and high compressive strength for bone repair applications. The findings from this work show that 3D-printing is a promising method for fabrication of the porous, sol-gel derived bioactive ceramic scaffolds and could be used in bone regeneration applications.
