Feature paper on the Journal of Functional Biomaterial

The paper “3D Printing of Hierarchically Porous Lattice Structures Based on Åkermanite Glass Microspheres and Reactive Silicone Binder” published in cooperation of the FunGlass Center and the group of Prof. Bernardo has been selected as a feature paper and highlighted on the Journal of Functional Biomaterial (Q1).

The present study illustrates the manufacturing method of hierarchically porous 3D scaffolds based on åkermanite as a promising bioceramic for stereolithography.  The firing conditions did not affect the crystallization of åkermanite, but affected the transformation of silicone resin into silica or fully amorphous SiOC.
