CAMPOS, Daniella Dias Palombino de  e  BERTRAN, Celso Aparecido. Synthesis of carbonated hydroxyapatite nanorods in liquid crystals. Mat. Res. [online]. 2009, vol.12, n.3, pp. 265-268. ISSN 1516-1439.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-14392009000300003.

Syntheses of calcium phosphate nanoparticles, carried out in systems formed from surfactant, oil and water, have resulted in materials with promising possibilities for application. The calcium phosphate particles were synthesized using two different liquid crystals, formed from RenexTM, cyclohexane and a salts solution. The morphology of the nanoparticles synthesized in the liquid crystals is similar to that of hydroxyapatite particles that form bone mineral, where collagen fibers connect these particles so as to form a composite. Therefore, the synthesis of calcium phosphate nanoparticles in the systems used in this work can advance current understanding of mineralization processes that result in the formation of bone mineral.

Palavras-chave : hydroxyapatite; synthesis; liquid crystals.
