Abstract

Hard tissue implants such as bone fracture-repair devices, skeletal replacements, dental restoratives, or bony augmentation materials require specific properties for their individual applications. All of these applications can benefit from the wide range of properties that composite materials exhibit. Mineral particle morphology and surface energy plays a crucial role in the composites biological performance. Research on the nucleation and growth of hydroxyapatite crystals in media containing biopolymers or synthetic polyelectrolytes has been initiated. This synthetic method is viewed as a means of controlling surface area and energy of mineral particles through polymer chemisorption effects on crystal growth. The end product of this synthesis should be a mineral/polymer composite material.
