A Study on Biomineralization Behavior of Silk Fibroin Film

Abstract:

Article Preview

The aim of the present study is to evaluate the biomineralization behavior of silk fibroin. The biomimetic mineralization was carried out in an alternative calcium/phosphate soaking solution (ACPS). The formation of calcium phosphate deposits was identified by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). A quick formation of well-crystallized apatite on the surface of the silk fibroin film indicates that biomineralization may be an effective approach to obtaining fibroin/HAP composites.
