A Ragu, K Senthilarasan, P Sakthivel

Abstract


In this study, a new kind of nano hydroxyapatite (nHAp) / polyurethane(PU) nano composite were fabricated for potential use in teeth and bone tissue engineering. Nano hydroxyapatite was successfully synthesized by wet chemical precipitation method. In this work, hydroxyapatite/polyurethane nano composites were synthesized and characterization of the compound were done  by using Fourier transform infrared(FTIR), X-ray diffraction(XRD), scanning electron microscopy(SEM), energy dispersive spectrum(EDS).

Keywords


FTIR, XRD,SEM, EDS, Hydroxyapatite(HAp), Polyurethane(PU).
