Article Preview

This study presents wet chemical reaction synthesis of nano Hydroxyapatite (HA) powder from seashells and the use of HA powder for the preparation of a composite coating with polysulfone (PSU), a biocompatible polymer which is electrospun on to Ti-6Al-4V alloy. The XRD/EDX patterns obtained for the synthesized powder showed phase pure hydoxyapatite and the HR-SEM analysis revealed that the HA particles have rod-shaped morphology. The HA powder was reinforced with Polysulfone (PSU) under different concentrations and coated by electro spinning over 2 mm thick sheets of Ti-6Al-4V alloy. The coated titanium sheets were also characterized by HR-SEM.
