Paper Title:
Preparation of Nano-Hydroxyapatite/Polyamide6 Composite Porous Scaffold for Bone Tissue Engineering
  Abstract

Scaffold in bone tissue engineering must have a three-dimensional (3-D) interconnected porous structure acting as a template for bone tissue regeneration, and material fabricating the scaffold must be biocompatible and can provide structural support during bone growth and remodeling at the same time. In this paper, a method of phase separation and particle leaching combined (PS/PL) was used to prepare porous scaffold of nano-hydroxyapatite and polyamide6 (n-HA/PA6) composite. The results show that the scaffold prepared by PS/PL has not only interconnected macropores of 100~300 μm, but also micropores on the walls of macropores, and PS/PL scaffold is more interconnective in compare with phase separation (PS) scaffold. When the porosity of the scaffold is about 79%, its compressive strongth is about 3.27 MPa, that is similar to the human cancellous bone(2~10MPa). Ethanol has some effect on hydrogen bonds, but fabricating method will not change the chemical component of the composite. The porous scaffold is prospect for bone tissue engineering.
