Synthesis of bone-like nanocomposites using multiphosphorylated peptides.


There is a great need for novel materials for mineralized tissue repair and regeneration. Two examples of such tissue, bone and dentin, are highly organized hierarchical nanocomposites in which mineral and organic phases interface at the molecular level. In contrast, current graft materials are either ceramic powders or physical blends of mineral and… (More)
