Biomineralization Properties of Polyvinyl Alcohol/Bioglass Biocomposite Hydrogels

Abstract:

Article Preview

In order to form the firm active fixation with the adjacent bone, a new kind of bioactive composite hydrogel was prepared as calcic layer of cartilage with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and bioglass (BG). The biomineralization properties of the PVA/BG biocomposite hydrogel were studied through Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy, XRD and SEM with EDX. Results showed that hydroxylcarbonateapatite was formed on the surface of the PVA/BG biocomposite hydrogel after the biocomposite hydrogel soaked into SBF solution. The composite possesses good mineralization properties and could form good firm active fixation with the adjacent bone.
