Hydroxyapatite (HAP) nanostructures have wide potential applications in many fields such as drug delivery, tissue engineering, bone repair, gas sensing, catalysis and water treatment. Inspired with the fact that HAP has a high affinity with proteins, we have designed and developed a new synthetic strategy for three-dimensional (3-D) HAP nanosheet-assembled microspheres (HAP-NMSs) by employing hemoglobin as a soft template. The as-prepared products are characterized by X-ray powder diffraction… CONTINUE READING
