Porous ceramics made of alumina and hydroxyapatite were created using a protein foaming method. Porosity and pore size distribution were successfully varied by means of chemical modification of the foaming protein Bovine serum albumin (BSA). The effectiveness of the BSA and of its chemical modifications as well as the influence of the dispersing agent were(More)
Three model proteins, bovine serum albumin, hen's egg lysozyme and bovine serum fibrinogen, were adsorbed from aqueous solution onto finely dispersed ceramic particles, namely different kinds of alumina and hydroxyapatite particles. The influence of adsorption on protein secondary structure was investigated. The FTIR spectroscopic findings were compared(More)
