Nano calcium phosphate powder production through chemical agitation from atlantic deer cowrie shells (Cypraea cervus Linnaeus)
The process is a simple chemical method and aims to produce nano-structured calcium phosphate powders from natural sources, for biomedical applications. For this purpose, Atlantic Deer Cowrie (ADC) shells (Cypraea cervus ...
Preparation and evaluation of cerium oxide-bovine hydroxyapatite composites for biomedical engineering applications
The fabrication and characterization of bovine hydroxyapatite (BHA) and cerium oxide (CeO2) composites are presented. CeO2 (at varying concentrations 1, 5 and 10 wt.%) were added to calcinated BHA powder. The resulting ...
A new method for fabrication of nanohydroxyapatite and TCP from the sea snail cerithium vulgatum
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014)
Biphasic bioceramic nanopowders of hydroxyapatite (HA) and ß-tricalcium phosphate (TCP) were prepared from shells of the sea snail Cerithium vulgatum (Bruguière, 1792) using a novel chemical method. Calcination of the ...
Nanostructured biomaterials with antimicrobial properties
The present review is intended to bring together the main advances in the field of nanostructured biomaterials with antimicrobial properties. It is generally accepted that the discovery of antibiotics was of great importance ...
