In Vitro Anti Microbial and Anti Inflammatory Study of Nano Carbonated Hydroxyapatite/Poly(Vinyl Alcohol) Composites: Synthesis and Its Characterization
Abstract:Nano carbonated hydroxyapatite/Poly(vinyl alcohol) composites of varying composition for biomaterial applications have been synthesized. The nano Carbonated hydroxyapatite/Poly(vinyl alcohol) composite materials were characterized by XRD, FTIR, HRTEM, TGA, DTA and FESEM. Carbonated Hydroxyapatite nano rod embedded composite was prepared using poly(vinyl alcohol) as a matrix with different weight percentages (wt%). The results indicated that the size and crystallinity of Carbonated hydroxyapatite nano particles decreases with increase in poly(vinyl alcohol) concentration in the composite. SEM confirms the presence of carbonated hydroxyapatite nano rod crystals in poly(vinyl alcohol) matrix. Nano Carbonated hydroxyapatite/Poly(vinyl alcohol) composites were screened for antimicrobial activity and anti inflammatory activity.

- Bionanoscience attempts to harness various functions of biological macromolecules and integrate them with engineering for technological applications. It is based on a bottom-up approach and encompasses structural biology, biomacromolecular engineering, material science, and engineering, extending the horizon of material science. The journal aims at publication of (i) Letters (ii) Reviews (3) Concepts (4) Rapid communications (5) Research papers (6) Book reviews (7) Conference announcements in the interface between chemistry, physics, biology, material science, and technology. The use of biological macromolecules as sensors, biomaterials, information storage devices, biomolecular arrays, molecular machines is significantly increasing. The traditional disciplines of chemistry, physics, and biology are overlapping and coalescing with nanoscale science and technology. Currently research in this area is scattered in different journals and this journal seeks to bring them under a single umbrella to ensure highest quality peer-reviewed research for rapid dissemination in areas that are in the forefront of science and technology which is witnessing phenomenal and accelerated growth.
