Mesoscopically Ordered Bone-Mimetic Nanocomposites
Journal article, 2015

A sustainable approach that highly mimics bone-material deposition is reported to produce mechanically stable, degradable composites with nanostructures resembling that of natural bone. Molecular self-assembly combining intermolecular crosslinking leads to resilient matrices possessing long-range ordered aqueous domains, inside which moderately aligned poorly crystalline apatite is converted from the transient amorphous calcium phosphate phase.
