Synthesis of a hydroxyapatite/poly(methyl methacrylate) nanocomposite using dolomite

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hydroxyapatite/poly(methyl methacrylate) (HA–PMMA) nanocomposites are extensively used in biomedical fields. Therefore, the design and development of low-cost and industrially viable novel methods are essential to synthesize HA–PMMA nanoparticles. In this letter, we report such an economical, simple and industrially applicable novel method to synthesize nanosized HA–PMMA composite particles using extensively distributed dolomite.
