Environmentally Friendly Synthesis of Hydroxyapatite Nanoplates and their Adsorption Behavior of Proteins
By a environmentally friendly method with the control of anionic amino acid surfactant N-lauroylsarcosine sodium (Sar-Na), hydroxyapatite (HAP) nanoplates were synthesized and the adsorption behavior of bovine serum albumin (BSA) were carefully studied. The products were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). Results showed that hydroxyapatite nanocrystals with lengths of 100 nm, a width of 10 nm and a high aspect ratio (10:1) were obtained. Results of UV-Vis spectrum indicate that prepared hydroxyapatite nanoplates can be effectively adsorbed BSA. The current work provides a new approach to produce biomaterials.
