Heterogeneous Nucleation of Hydroxyapatite-collagen Nanocomposite
Hydroxyapatite[COL] nanocomposite was prepared through coprecipitation process. The chemical bond formation between HAP and COL was confirmed by diffusive reflectance FT-IR and TEM observation. Higher concentration of COL in the preparation induced tiny nanocrystalline composite particles, but lower concentration of COL contributed to form the well developed HAP particles. From TEM observation and ED(Electron Diffraction) pattern the embedded HAP nanoparticles were oriented along the c-axis of COL fiber. In an aqueous system of constant [Ca$^$2+/] and [PO$_4$$^$3-/], quantity of soluble COL matrix was doing an important role of controlling the heterogeneous nucleation site for the formation of HAP nanocrystals. Higher concentration of COL will provide more nucleation sites for Ca$^$2+/ and so the concentration of calcium ions for the total number of active nucleation sites will be getting relatively dilute.
