Biological properties of pmma/nhap and pmma/3-apt-nhap nanocomposites
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, nanocomposite-implant materials with the filler materials, which are nanohydroxyapatite (nHAp) and nHAp modified by [3-(2-aminoethilamino)propyl]trimethoxysilane, using poly(methylmethacrylate) as a matrix according to the melting method, were synthesized. The nanocomposites were characterized using X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy-attenuated total reflectance, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, differential thermal analysis/thermogravimetric analysis, and differential scanning calorimetry devices. Experimental results showed that the thermal stability of nanocomposites increased, and they were hemocompatible, had no negative effect on antioxidant enzymes, and had antibacterial activity.
