A Novel Nanocomposite Material for Biomedical Applications
Play Slidecast
This project is designed to examine multi-walled CNTs, reinforced with PMMA/HAp nanocomposite, to serve as a novel bone cement material, along with other biomedical purposes. This session reviews improvements to Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) -- used now in and paints and plexiglass, can enhance CNTs for nanobio use. CNT improvement via hydroxyapatite (HAp) is also investigated. The work was conducted by a multi-national team of researchers from Centre for Mechanical Technology & Automation, University of Aveiro (Portugal); University Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg (France): and Georgia Institute of Technology, Materials Science and Engineering, Atlanta, GA (U.S.)
