Abstract:Polyelectrolite hydrogels were submitted to the biomimetic method. The experimental results clearly show that the method has coated them with HA globular crystals of similar to 500 nm in diameter. Moreover, the method strongly influences the swelling of the hydrogels. The results strongly suggest that a biologically active HA layer forms also on the surface of the internal pores. Therefore, it is a powerful method for producing micro- and nano-patterned structures of biologically active apatite on the surface …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
