Poster summary

The ideal percentage of PCL/graphene for bone cell proliferation is required; therefore, the characteristics and biodegradation of this composite must be determined prior to continuing biological exploration, such as viability testing. In the current study, a PCL/graphene scaffold with graphene concentrations of 0.5, 1.5, and 2.5 wt% has been produced using solvent casting and particulate leaching methods. Furthermore, the scaffold was cultured with osteoblast-like (MG-63) cells, and the 2.5 wt% G concentration revealed enhanced cell proliferation to other concentrations. This finding suggests that PCL/graphene scaffolds could potentially have biomedical and tissue engineering applications.
