Comparative Study of In Situ Interactions between Maleic Anhydride Based Copolymers with Hydroxyl Apatite
A comparative study of the in situ interactions between different maleic anhydride based copolymers and calcium phosphates is presented in this paper. The ability of functional groups of the organic polymers to form under high pressure and low temperatures chemical bonds with the inorganic phase leading to improved properties of hybrid nanostructured material is discussed. The open challenges of new hybrid nanocomposites in the field of biomedical materials are evaluated. The challenge to use these nanostructured materials in medical field was evaluated by mapping the interface reactions between hybrid active layers and cells.
