Collagen mineralization (CM) is a challenging process that has received a lot of attention in the past years. Among the reasons for this interest, the key role is the importance of collagen and hydroxyapatite in natural bone, as major constituents. Different protocols of mineralization have been developed, specially using simulated body fluid (SBF) and many methods have been used to characterize the systems obtained, starting with methods of determining the mineral content (XRD, FTIR, Raman… 
Preparation and characterization of marine mineralized ASC nanocomposites through biomineralization.
TLDR
The results of UV/Vis spectrophotometer for turbidity measurements during the initial step of biomineralization revealed that SDBS while accelerating the self-assembly process of collagen nano-fibrills, delayed the process of nucleation and the growth of calcium phosphate nanocrystals by increasing the kinetic energy barrier.
Morphological, mechanical, and in-vitro bioactivity of gelatine/collagen/hydroxyapatite based scaffolds prepared by unidirectional freeze-casting
Abstract The fabrication of biomaterials to be used in segmental bone defects, mimicking the bone's organic-inorganic architecture and mechanical properties to induce osteogenesis, persists as a key
Self-Assembled Type I Collagen-Apatite Fibers with Varying Mineralization Extent and Luminescent Terbium Promote Osteogenic Differentiation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells.
TLDR
It is concluded that the new nanocomposite is an ideal candidate for bone regenerative therapy.
Enhanced Bioactivity of Collagen Fiber Functionalized with Room Temperature Atomic Layer Deposited Titania.
TLDR
The TiO2-coated collagen demonstrated improved biocompatibility promoting higher growth and proliferation of human osteoblastic and mesenchymal stem cells when compared to that of non coated collagen, and can be promising in bone tissue engineering applications.
Silk fibroin-derived polypeptides additives to promote hydroxyapatite nucleation in dense collagen hydrogels
TLDR
It is demonstrated that silk FDPs incorporation are not yet suitable to promote HA nucleation in vivo without further refining the collagen-FDP system.
Alternate soaking enables easy control of mineralized collagen scaffold mechanics from nano- to macro-scale.
TLDR
The method detailed herein provides a way to create mineralized collagen scaffolds with easily controllable mechanical properties, and the radial indentation modulus of the sheets' constituent collagen fibrils.
Surface potential and roughness controlled cell adhesion and collagen formation in electrospun PCL fibers for bone regeneration
Abstract Surface potential of biomaterials is a key factor regulating cell responses, driving their adhesion and signaling in tissue regeneration. In this study we compared the surface and zeta
Piezoelectric Heterogeneity in Collagen Type I Fibrils Quantitatively Characterized by Piezoresponse Force Microscopy.
TLDR
The quantitative PFM, combined with a dual-frequency resonance-tracking method, successfully identified the anisotropic and heterogenous nature of the piezoelectric properties in the collagen fibril and highlights the physiological importance of the collagen pieziolectricity in bone mineralization.
Protein-free formation of bone-like apatite: New insights into the key role of carbonation.
TLDR
Data is presented supporting the hypothesis that physicochemical effects of carbonate integration within the apatite lattice control the morphology, size, and mechanics of bioapatite mineral crystals, and demonstrating that carbonate substitution is sufficient to drive the formation of bone-like crystallites.
Monitoring biomineralization of biomaterials in vivo
In this chapter we have sought to provide readers with an overview of in vivo techniques currently used for the imaging of biomineralisation materials. To achieve this we have provided a background
