Abstract

Synthetic hydroxyapatite is especially attractive to serve as a filler material for biodegradable polymer-ceramic composites. Advantages include similarity to composition to bone mineral, bioactivity and promotion of cellular function, and osteoconductivity. The objective of this work was to investigate compressive mechanical properties of HA grafted with a biodegradable and crosslinkable macromer consisting of dimethylsilane units alternating with fumarate and adipate units. The adipate units serve as a flexible spacer between the fumarate units.
