Effects of deproteinization and ashing on site-specific properties of cortical bone.


Buffered sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) solution was used to remove selectively the collagen phase from bovine cortical bone. Changes in the mechanical behaviour and material properties were studied over a wide range of resolution (from 5 microm to 3 mm) using an integrated combination of experimental techniques. Optical microscopy indicated that timed… (More)
