Abstract

Optimal implants for bone tissue engineering require sufficient mechanical strength as well as apt bioactivity and biodegradability. Calcium silicate (CaSiO3 - CS) ceramics have been studied for tissue engineering and implantation for their good bioactivity properties. Elastomer poly (1.8-octanediol citrate) (POC), one of the most biocompatible polymer, is used for biomedical application. The objective of this study is to fabricate a novel composite of calcium silicate with different ratios of POC to enhance the mechanical properties. The results showed that the compressive and the bending strengths of calcium silicate/POC biocomposite were improved remarkably at 40 wt POC.
