Bioinspired composite materials: sorbents for chromatography, bone-like structures and substrates for cell cultures
Keywords:calcium carbonate and phosphate mineralization, nanoparticle, polyelectrolyte, carboxylic polymer, cell culturing, thin-layer chromatography
Simulation of calcium and silicon biomineralization made it possible to obtain various composite particles containing an inorganic component and an organic polymer. These particles exist in a variety of forms, from stable aqueous dispersions to solid materials. New composite materials are promising for creating functionalized coatings and three-dimensional structures of different morphology. We prepared composites of calcium carbonate and phosphate by forming an inorganic phase in the presence of water-soluble polymers. The potential of new materials as sorbents for chromatography, 3D bone-like structures, and coatings for cell growth was demonstrated.
