Abstract

A shape-memory chitosan scaffold (CSS) fabricated by an ice-templated method can be used as a versatile host matrix for self-assembly of a wide range of functional nanoscale building blocks, and thus it can produce a family of functional three-dimensional (3D) macroscale assemblies, which show promising practical application potential in various fields.
