Novel Porous Bioabsorbable Phosphate Glass Matrix Nanocomposites Incorporating Trisilanolphenyl Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxane Prepared By Extrusion

This study introduces a groundbreaking approach to developing porous phosphate glass matrix nanocomposites, enhanced with polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS), through extrusion processing. Utilizing tin fluorophosphate glass with an ultra-low transition temperature, this research marks a significant advancement in creating novel hybrid materials. These nanocomposites exhibit substantial porosity, attributed to the evaporation of water produced from the reaction between the glass and POSS during extrusion. This innovative material could revolutionize applications in high-temperature environments where traditional organic polymers fail, offering new possibilities in biomedical, catalysis, and engineering fields.
