Preparation and Characterization of Hydroxyapatite/Bacterial Cellulose Nanocomposite Scaffolds for Bone Tissue Engineering

Abstract:

Article Preview

The surfaces of BC (bacterial cellulose) nanofibers are covered with homogeneous nano-sized precipitates upon exposure to SBF. The characteristics of the nanocompoiste scaffolds are characterized by XRD, FTIR, TEM and SEM. It is believed that the the HAp/BC nanocomposite scaffold are promising in applications of bone tissue engineering.
