Biocomposites of hydroxyapatite, HAp, in conjunction with various binders including poly(vinyl alcohol), PVA, and collagen have the potential of serving in various tissue engineering applications, such as in bone repair and reconstruction tasks, especially if the nanoparticles of hydroxyapatite are used. Here, hydroxyapatite nanoparticles (n-HAp) were synthesized at the ultimate size range of 10-50 nm and then incorporated into PVA or in situ synthesized in collagen/PVA. The biocomposites of… CONTINUE READING
