Abstract: In this study, we have focused on preparation, fabrication and characterization of polycaprolactone and beta tricalcium phosphate (PCL/β-TCP) composite scaffolds that are used for bone tissue engineering applications. The electrospun composites have been characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM). The developed scaffolds are effectively simulated the morphology, mechanical property and bioactivity for load-bearing tissue engineering applications. The bioactivity of the scaffolds has been evaluated with in vitro cell adhesion and growth studies. The results confirm the nontoxic behaviour of the composite biomaterials and developed scaffolds with MG-63 osteoblast-like cell line. The synthesized scaffolds have shown promising bioactivity with the growth as well as proliferation of new bone cells with considerable osteoconductive properties. The nanoscaffolds possess better physical properties and support high cell adhesion suggesting their application in bone tissue engineering field.
