Nawang, Rosnah and Hussein, Mohd Zobir and Matori, Khamirul Amin and Che Abdullah, Che Azurahanim and Hashim, Mansor and Osman, Rosiah (2018) Bioactivity of hydroxyapatite/montmorillonite clay nanocomposite. In: 2nd International Symposium on Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology (i-SAMN 2018), 15-16 Aug. 2018, The Everly Putrajaya, Malaysia. (pp. 78-79).


In-vitro bioactivity behavior of hydroxyapatite (HA)/montmorillonite (MMT) nanocomposite was studied by immersing the samples in a phosphate buffer solution. The weight changes before and after the testing were recorded and the morphology of the samples was studied. Results showed that a significant weight loss occured in nanocomposite with the ratio of HA:MMT 50:50. The morphology of the sample revealed the apatite formation on the surface of the nanocomposite which suggested the potential use of the material for bone implant application.
