    Abstract: Physalis pith ash (PPA) is a renewable and green supplementary cementitious material. It is an effective approach to reduce the quantity of cement that could be used in blended cements. This will reduce the CO2↑ emission, which in turn will lower the environmental pollution. In the current study, the influence of PPA on physicomechanical characteri... Show More

    Abstract: Diverse biomaterials have been designed to promote bone regeneration, and due to their potential side effects of adverse inflammation and immune responses, only a few synthetic biomaterials displayed successful clinical outcomes in repairing bone defects. The repair of bone defects remains a big challenge for orthopedists. This study was dedicated ... Show More
