In Vitro Bio-Mineralization Process
The present work describes the development of biomimetic composites materials for bone tissue substitution and repair. At this purpose a biomimetic approach was used and apatitic phases were nucleated on macromolecular matrices like natural collagen, which act as template and induce peculiar physico-chemical features in the mineral phase.
