Paper Title:
Preparation and Properties of Calcium Phosphate Cement Containing ZnO Whisker
  Abstract

Calcium phosphate cement (CPC) is a self-hardening material for bone repairing. ZnO whisker is a new type reinforced materials lately, which is acerose single crystal fiber. In this study, ZnO whisker was added into the CPC with different ratios, and each specimen kept at 37 oC in 100% humidity for 24 hrs. The phase and microstructure of the calcium phosphate pastes were investigated using X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy, respectively. It has been found that ZnO whisker could supply nucleating center, TTCP and DCPA could be much easier to form HA around the ZnO whisker. The adding amount of ZnO whisker is a key factor that determines the mechanical properties.
