Some microscopy studies on the mineral phase of bone have been carried out either utilizing Optical or Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), generally around 1000x magnification, to observe the interaction between cells and bone mineral. Other studies have been utilizing Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), generally around 1000000x magnification, to observe the fundamental particles that form bone mineral. The literature lacks works that utilize Scanning Electron Microscopy around 10000x… 

Investigation of age related changes to porcine cortical bone using nanoindentation and ash content

Developing bone undergoes significant structural changes at multiple scales. To gain a better understanding of this dynamic, living material, porcine bone properties were analyzed from shortly after

Local electronic structure and nanolevel hierarchical organization of bone tissue: theory and NEXAFS study

The NEXAFS analysis has demonstrated the essential hierarchy induced HAP- to-bone red shifts of the Ca and P 2p-to-valence transitions and described the mechanisms ensuring the link of the hierarchical organization with the electronic structure of the mineralized phase in bone.

Biopolymer based structures for biological tissue reconstruction

This study was motivated by the alarming findings on the harmful effects of aluminum on bone mineralization and includes the results of a study concerning the modification of fibroin fibers and cellulose fibers with synthetic polymers, with the aim to enhance mineralization.

Analysis of bone mineral density of different sports and games in university level players

The purpose of the study was to analysis of bone mineral density of different sports and games in university level players. To achieve the purpose of the study, one hundred and twenty men players

Hierarchy effect on electronic structure and core-to-valence transitions in bone tissue: perspectives in medical nanodiagnostics of mineralized bone

Abstract Electronic structure and core-to-valence transitions in bone tissue are examined in the framework of the morphological 3DSL model that takes into account (i) structural and functional



Shape and size of isolated bone mineralites measured using atomic force microscopy

Size and Shape of Mineralites in Young Bovine Bone Measured by Atomic Force Microscopy

New AFM data supporting this claim is consistent with findings obtained by electron microscopy and low-angle x-ray and neutron diffraction that mineralites formed within collagen fibrils during initial stages of calcification occur within the hole zone region.

Hydrazine-deproteinated bone mineral

Physicochemical data are presented demonstrating that although rat bone crystals more closely resemble synthetic controls made in carbonate-rather than hydroxide-rich media, rat bone apatite cannot be interpreted in terms of known or postulated crystal models in any meaningful fashion.
