Paper Title:
Biopolymer-Hydroxyapatite Nanocomposite from Eggshell for Prospective Surgical Applications
  Abstract

From biological perspectives, biopolymer - hydroxyapatite nanocomposites for tissue replacement interact with the surrounding in vivo environment chemically, mechanically and morphologically. Hydroxyapatite (HA) is a natural ceramic operable as a biocomposite coating to improve the biocompatibility of implant substrates. To fulfill this requierements hydroxyapatite added biodegradable scaffold were prepared by electrospinning method to enhance biological functionality. In this work, firstly a novel synthesis of the hydroxyapatite nanocrystals prepared from eggshell are presented. Polymer based composites were prepared by electrospinning hydroxyapatite with a biocompatible polymer for the development of a structurally stable casing for prosthetic devices.
