Abstract

Polyurethanes are interesting materials that can be used in biomedical applications for regeneration of bone tissue. In this work the synthesis and characterization of porous polyurethanes to act as scaffold is performed by a thermally induced phase separation technique. The appropriate parameters are determined in order to obtain a porous well interconnected material. Characterization by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is made in order to determine the thermal stability of the material. Chemical characterization is made by Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy with attenuated total reflectance (FTIR-ATR). The morphology of the material is observed by a field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM) and the mechanical properties are measured by dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA).
