Biocompatibility and Medical Application of Carbon Material

Abstract:

Article Preview

Carbon composites have good mechanical properties and preserve the inherent excellent biocompatibility of carbon, which make them great potential as orthopedic implants in human body. The present work reviews the biocompatible behavior and research situation of such materials for medical application. The mechanical properties, interface and surface modification problem of carbon composites are discussed in detail. Finally, the medical prospects and some problems needed to be solved of carbon composites are put forward.
