Paper Title:
Synthesis and Characterization of n-HA/PVA/Gel Composite
  Abstract

A unique composite consisted of nano-hydroxyapatite (n-HA), poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA) and gelatin (Gel), was prepared and characterized by Fourier transform infrared absorption spectroscopy (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and burning test. The homogenicity of the composite was evaluated, and the presence of interior chemical bond was confirmed and discussed. Mechanical strength and water absorption of the prepared composite were investigated, respectively. The results show that n-HA/PVA/Gel composite has good homogeneity, similar mechanical properties to natural cartilage and excellent in vivo biocompatibility.
