Collagenous Molecule Immobilization on Hydroxyapatite Surface


Article Preview

Collagenous molecule was successfully immobilized to hydroxyapatite (HA) surface through a molecular bridge (2-Hydroxyethyl acrylate, HEMA) that was grafted to the surface with covalent bond by gamma irradiation. Hydroxyapatite modified by atelocollagen had been characterized by several surface sensitive techniques, such as FT-IR, SEM, XPS. The investigations showed that the collagen, a bioactive macromolecule, was immobilized on the HA surface through covalent bond.
