Preparation of Phosphorylated Chitosan/ Chitosan/ Hydroxyapatite Composites by Co-Precipitation Method
In this work, the PCS/CS/HA composites with different weight ratios were prepared through a co-precipitation method. The properties of these composites were characterized by means of the XRD, the IR, the SEM and the bending strength test. The value of bending strength of the PCS/CS/ HA composite with a weight ratio of 10/30/60 was measured about 34.93 MPa which is 1.6 times high of the cancellous bone. The composite is appropriate to be used as materials for bone tissue engineering.
