Formation of calcium phosphate/collagen composites through mineralization of collagen matrix.

Abstract

Several types of calcium phosphate/collagen composites, including noncrystalline calcium phosphate/collagen, poorly crystalline carbonate-apatite (PCCA)/collagen, and PCCA + tetracalcium phosphate/collagen composites, were prepared through the mineralization of collagen matrix. The type I collagen was presoaked with a PO(3-)(4) containing solution and then… (More)
