Effect of Biopolymers on Structure of Hydroxyapatite and Interfacial Interactions in Biomimetically Synthesized Hydroxyapatite/Biopolymer Nanocomposites


The interfacial interaction and effect of biopolymer on crystal structure of hydroxyapatite in biomimetically synthesized nanocomposites, chitosan/hydroxyapatite (ChiHAP50), polygalacturonic acid/hydroxyapatite (PgAHAP50), and chitosan/polygalacturonic acid/hydroxyapatite (ChiPgAHAP50) have been investigated using atomic force microscopy (AFM), Fourier… (More)
