Abstract

Artificially synthesized hydroxyapatite (HAp) exhibits excellent biocompatibility with various kinds of cells and tissues, making it an ideal candidate for orthopedic and dental applications. HAp-based nanocomposites with polymers, metals, and other kinds of bioceramics have developed in order to improve the mechanical strength of HAp. This review is focused on providing a summary of existing knowledge and recent advances on fabrication methods of HAp nanocomposites.
