Electrohydrodynamic Processing Routes for Bioceramics


Article Preview

Bioceramic fibres, scaffolds and mats are important structures in biomedical applications. Electrohydrodynamic routes are relatively new for processing advanced materials and in this paper we use electrospinning to prepare zirconia fibres diameter down to 200nm and hydroxyapatite (HA) fibres down to 1$m. Zirconia-polymer and nHA-polymer composite scaffolds structures (mats) with 400-1000 $m windows were also prepared.
