Cellulose nanowhiskers (CNWs) with different surface composition were used to generate the biomimetic growth hydroxyapatite (HAp). Hybrids materials primarily consist of CNWs with HAp content below 24%. CNWs were produced by different inorganic acid hydrolyses to generate cellulose particles with surface groups to induce HAp mineralization. In the present study, we evaluate the use of CNWs prepared from hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid and phosphoric acid. HAp growth was obtained from the… CONTINUE READING
