Abstract

Biomaterials for tissue engineering conduct and guide tissue formation and block tissue interactions. These biomaterials require good biocompatibility, suitable biodegrability, and the interaction with specifically appropriate cells. New polymer networks were developed as matrices for tissue engineering using nontoxic glycerol, L-lactide and poly(ethylene glycol). The prerequisites for tissue engineering biomaterials were taken into account and the characteristics of the polymer networks were examined.
