Abstract

We have obtained the biodegradable, bio-compatible scaffolds (base-film for cell growing) possessing well developed porous surface made of polyester amide 8-Phe-6 (poly-mer composed of sebacic, L phenylalanine and 1,6 – hexanediol). Porous films were ob-tained by ultrasonic or mechanical dispersion of two-phase system (water/biodegradable polyester amide solution in chloroform), followed by freezing of the obtained emulsion and subsequent freeze-drying.
