A new deposition method is presented, based on electrospraying, that can build bioceramic structures with desirable surface properties. This technology allows nanoapatite crystals, including hydroxyapatite (nHA), carbonate-substituted HA (nCHA) and silicon-substituted HA (nSiHA), to be electrosprayed on glass substrates. Human osteoblast cells cultured on… CONTINUE READING
