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 β-tricalcium phosphate (TCP) were prepared from shells of the sea snail Cerithium vulgatum (Bruguière, 1792) using a novel chemical method. Calcination of the ...
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 ...
