This project aims the development and implementation of a new complex and reproducible synthesis technology of biomimetic ceramic materials
derived from marble and seashell precursors and their performance assessment as potential use in restorative and reconstructive surgery.
Concept design and experimental route for the synthesis of hydroxyapatite powder from marble and seashells precursor`s type. Synthesis of 3D structures with tunable structural characteristics and porosity
In vitro evaluation of the biomimetic 3D structuresSelection of the optimal synthesis route and advantageous materials used in bone regeneration applications. Development of a laboratory work precedure for the manufacturing of experimental models.
Use of strictly biogenic materials.
Morphology, particle size and chemical composition by SEM/EDS and TEM, structure by XRD and FT-IR and mass stability by TGA-DSC analysis.
Obtain an original reproducible technology for the synthesis and processing of biogenic hydroxyapatite
Testing the apatite formation in vitro is imperative for the assessment of cell adhesion, inflammatory responses and for subsequent in vivo testing
