Akermanite (AKM) is considered to be a promising bioactive material for bone tissue engineering due to the moderate biodegradability and excellent biocompatibility. However, the major disadvantage of AKM is the relatively inadequate fracture toughness, which hinders the further applications. In the study, boron nitride nanosheets (BNNSs) reinforced AKM… CONTINUE READING
