Paper Title:
Production of Polymer Nanofibers Containing Hydroxyapatite by Electrospinning
  Abstract

Hydroxyapatite (HAP) is the main inorganic component of mammal bone and teeth. It is one of the few bioactive materials, which helps cell growing. The objective of this study was to fabricate hydroxyapatite-biopolimer nanofiber mats. To achieve this goal, two different suspensions were used. Approximately 1 μm diameter size fibers with large HAP agglomerates were fabricated using acetone and acetic acid. Fibers with a larger diameter size and homogenous distributed HAP particles were produced applying acetone and isopropanol. During the experiment the effect of the processing parameters: applied voltage, diameter of needle, the distance of the needle tip and the collector, flow rate was analyzed.
