Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose (HPMC) of high-viscosity grade is used as a ligand for a bioactive calcium phosphate ceramic (the filler) in a ready-to-use injectable sterilized biomaterial for bone and dental surgery. Application of physico-chemical methods such as XPS, NMR, or Raman spectroscopy encounters difficulties when used to study such a multiphased… CONTINUE READING
