Molten salt synthesis of potassium-containing hydroxyapatite microparticles used as protein substrate

Abstract:

The bioactivity of a material may be favorably altered by exerting control over its protein sorption propensity. Spheroidal potassium-containing calcium phosphate bioceramic microparticles were manufactured by molten salt synthesis. The effects on particle characteristics and adsorption of bovine serum albumin (BSA) of different hydroxyapatite (HA, Ca10(PO4) 6(OH)2) to salt flux (K2SO4) ratios were investigated. X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns showed the emergence of minor phases in addition...
