Sustainable Bio-Based Membranes As Coatings For Metallic Implants Can Improve Osseointegration

During the last few decades, polymeric materials have reigned as the cornerstone of different developments across the globe, especially in the economic and social sectors. Recently in today’s multifaceted ecosphere, there has been a great universal initiative toward the development of new, high-value sustainable polymers and composite materials procured from bio-renewable resources. These bio-based materials are highly desired in a number of applications, especially in the biomedical industry such as Osseointegration. Particularly in case of major bone defects, metallic implants...
