Fabrication of calcium phosphate fibres through electrospinning and sintering of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles

Abstract:

Calcium phosphate (CaP) materials such as synthetic hydroxyapatite (HA, Ca10(PO4)6·(OH)2) and β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP, Ca3(PO4) 2) are well-known for their potential in bone tissue engineering and drug delivery applications. Processing such materials into submicrofibres might contribute to improve their biocompatibility. This paper presents a new method for creating CaP submicrofibres through the electrospinning route. A thermal treatment at sintering temperature (1100 C) was applied to...
