Research

Keywords: biomimetic chemistry calcium phosphates structural chemistry biomaterials

Scientific interests regard the study of chemical and structural aspects of calcium phosphates inorganic crystals and biological macromolecules involved in biomineralization, and their structural relationships.

Preparation of innovative composite materials according to the following research:

  • synthesis and characterization of nano- and micro-crystalline inorganic phases through novel biomimetic processes;
  • study of structural and morphological modifications of calcium phosphates due to the interaction with bioactive ions and molecules;    
  • oriented growth of inorganic phases on polymeric and metallic matrices;
  • design and implementation of innovative biomaterials for orthopedics.

 

Main techniques are X-rays diffraction techniques, scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM, TEM), spectroscopic and thermo-analytical techniques.
