Abstract The main reasons for using bone scaffolds are to provide an environment for bone formation, maintain the space and at the same time supply mechanical support to the skeleton during healing process. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) was chosen as scaffold materials due to is biocompatibility, good osteoconductive properties and high compressive strength compared to other porous bioceramic materials, e.g. hydroxyapatite or bioglass ceramic. The aim of present research was to produce 3D porous titania scaffolds with interconnected pore structure for bone tissue engineering.
