Abstract

Flexible bioactive materials were synthesized by modification of 2-hydroxyethyl-methacrylate (HEMA) with silanol groups and calcium ions. MPS and HEMA were copolymerized by radical reaction in ethanol, followed by the addition of CaCl2 dissolved in ethanol. The surface structures of the hybrids before and after soaking in simulated body fluids (SBF) were examined in scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and thin-film x-ray diffraction (TF-XRD). The results show that the hybrids CA-NO and CA-NH4OH have a potential to form apatite even in the body and bond to living bone through the apatite layer.
