Freeze Drying - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Freeze drying/emulsification is a promising technique for scaffold preparation. The principle of freeze drying is sublimation process in which the frozen water in the polymer nanocomposites is directly converted from solid to gas state without apparent liquefaction. In the first step, polymer is completely dissolved in an appropriate solvent.
