We report a novel method for the fabrication of porous zinc oxide scaffolds by a scalable supercritical CO2 (sc-CO2) based nebulization process. This process consists of mixing of sc-CO2 stream with zinc acetate solution under supercritical conditions. This process consists of evaporation of CO2 enriched water micro-droplets deposited from an aerosol onto heated substrates. Our process is readily scalable to produce zinc oxide scaffolds on a manufacturing scale.
