This work contains original data supporting our research paper “Advances in cartilage repair: the influence of inorganic clays to improve mechanical and healing properties of antibacterial Gellan gum-Manuka honey hydrogels”, by Maria A. Bonifacio, Andrea Cochis, Stefania Cometa, Annachiara Scalzone, Piergiorgio Gentile, Giuseppe Procino, Serena Milano, Alessandro C. Scalia, Lia Rimondini, Elvira De Giglio [1]. The main paper describes how four different clays (i.e., mesoporous silica, bentonite and halloysite nanotubes, coded as MS, BE and HNT) as cheap, abundant and versatile feed materials can be used for the preparation of highly performant hydrogels as cartilage substitutes, based on Gellan Gum (GG) and Manuka Honey (MH). Here the composites were further examined by means of Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), histological analysis (Alcian blue and Safranin-O) and static compression tests. This set of data strengthens the evidence that these hydrogels possess biological and physicochemical characteristics suitable for their application as reinforcing inorganic fillers in composite materials designed for cartilage regeneration.

Abstract

This work contains original data supporting our research paper “Advances in cartilage repair: the influence of inorganic clays to improve mechanical and healing properties of antibacterial Gellan gum-Manuka honey hydrogels”, by Maria A. Bonifacio, Andrea Cochis, Stefania Cometa, Annachiara Scalzone, Piergiorgio Gentile, Giuseppe Procino, Serena Milano, Alessandro C. Scalia, Lia Rimondini, Elvira De Giglio [1]. The main paper describes how four different clays (i.e., mesoporous silica, bentonite and halloysite nanotubes, coded as MS, BE and HNT) as cheap, abundant and versatile feed materials can be used for the preparation of highly performant hydrogels as cartilage substitutes, based on Gellan Gum (GG) and Manuka Honey (MH). Here the composites were further examined by means of Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), histological analysis (Alcian blue and Safranin-O) and static compression tests. This set of data strengthens the evidence that these hydrogels possess biological and physicochemical characteristics suitable for their application as reinforcing inorganic fillers in composite materials designed for cartilage regeneration.
