Sol-gel driven hydroxyapatite (HA) nanoparticles and graphene nanoflakes were incorporated with polycaprolactone (PCL) at different concentrations, and then electrospun at various spinning conditions, such as distance, electrical potential, viscosity and pump speed. The HA nanoparticles were initially amorphous, so they were annealed at elevated temperature (750 °C) for two hours to make them crystalline. Scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis techniques were conducted on… Expand
