Paper Title:
A Study on Biomineralization Behavior of Silk Fibroin Film
  Abstract

The aim of the present study is to evaluate the biomineralization behavior of silk fibroin. The biomimetic mineralization was carried out in an alternative calcium/phosphate soaking solution (ACPS). The formation of calcium phosphate deposits was identified by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). A quick formation of well-crystallized apatite on the surface of the silk fibroin film indicates that biomineralization may be an effective approach to obtaining fibroin/HAP composites.
