Electrophoretic Deposition of Organic - Inorganic Composites for Biomedical Applications
Electrophoretic deposition method has been developed for the fabrication of organic-inorganic composite films, containing bioglass and hydroxyapatite in a hyaluronic acid matrix. The film composition and deposition yield were varied by variation of the electrochemical bath composition and deposition time. The films were studied by scanning electron microscopy, thermogravimetric analysis and X-ray diffraction methods. The deposition method offers the advantages of room temperature processing and allows the fabrication of composite films for biomedical applications.
