Abstract:
The effective segregation of chitosan (Chi) molecules in a silica-surfactant nanostructure formation process was investigated to find unique self-assembled nanostructures of Chi. The formation process induced the well-defined segregation nanofiber networks to exhibit osteoblast-like cell adhesion and spreading, suggesting the unique Chi segregation nanostructures cytocompatibility.
