- ... Mineralized films are interesting biomaterials to repair bone defects. They can be easily shaped into bone defect and be permeated by body fluids as well as allow cell proliferation. Xanthan and chitosan films mineralized with hydroxyapatite prepared and characterized in this work showed an improved film stability and controlled swelling degree when dipped in different pH buffers. The layer-by-lay ...
