Abstract:


This paper provides a review on the applications of some graphene oxide-based hydrogels in bone tissue engineering. Hydrogels used in bone tissue engineering usually require suitable biocompatibility, porosity, and mechanical strength. By adding GO, under the original hydrogel condition, the various indexes of the composite hydrogel can reach more suitable conditions for inducing bone defect healing. This article also introduces some high-performance graphene oxide-based hydrogels, which are likely to play an essential role in bone tissue engineering in the future.
