Summary We describe a convenient route to the preparation of silk scaffolds that does not require silk fiber dissolution and regeneration. We prepare the silk scaffolds via a single step pickering-high internal phase emulsion (HIPE) method. Additionally, we find that the use of biocompatible ionic liquids significantly improves the compressive properties of the HIPEs.
