Bone cell adhesion on novel carbon nanofibers and polycarbonate urethane/carbon nanofiber (PCU/CNF) composites is investigated in the present in vitro study. Carbon nanofibers have exceptional theoretical mechanical properties (such as high strength to weight ratios) that, along with possessing nanoscale fiber dimensions similar to crystalline hydroxyapatite found in physiological bone, suggest strong possibilities for use as an orthopedic/dental implant material. The effects of select… CONTINUE READING
