Abstract

A study on the bioactivity and mechanical properties of the porous hydroxyapatite–hardystonite–PCL was performed, and the results were compared with the non-modified porous hydroxyapatite. Different apatite morphologies were observed in these two modified and unmodified scaffolds. The compression strength, modulus and toughness of the modified scaffolds showed 104, 14 and 38% improvement compared to unmodified scaffolds. This can be ascribed to the main role of thin polymer-ceramic coating layer applied on the surface of hydroxyapatite scaffolds on the mechanical and biological properties. These composite scaffolds showed a great potential to be used for bone tissue engineering application.
