In Situ Biomimetic Synthesis and Characterization of Nano Hydroxyapatite in Gelatin Matrix
In this work, nano hydroxyapatite (nHAp) composites were synthesized via an in situ biomimetic process at room temperature by using gelatin as a template agent. Formation of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles and the effect of biopolymer concentration on the shape and morphology of the nHAp nanoparticles were confirmed and investigated by using X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), Scanning and Transmission Electron Microscopy (SEM and TEM). The results indicated that, the gelatin biopolymer as a template agent in the preparation batch has influences the size and morphology of the HAp nanocrystals precipitated in an aqueous solution of gelatin.
