Mimicking bone nanostructure by combining block copolymer self-assembly and 1D crystal nucleation.

Abstract

The orientation and spatial distribution of nanocrystals in the organic matrix are two distinctive structural characteristics associated with natural bone. Synthetic soft materials have been used to successfully control the orientation of mineral crystals. The spatial distribution of minerals in a synthetic scaffold, however, has yet to be reproduced in a… (More)
