    • Ion-doping as a strategy to modulate hydroxyapatite nanoparticle internalization 

      Zhao, Zhitong; Español Pons, Montserrat; Guillem Martí, Jordi; Kempf, Doreen; Díez Escudero, Anna; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (2016)
      Open Access
      Although it is widely acknowledged that ionic substitutions on bulk hydroxyapatite substrates have a strong impact on their biological performance, little is known of their effect on nanoparticles (NPs) especially when ...
    • Synthesis of ion-substitued nanosized apatites and assessment of dispersibility and cell culture behaviour 

      Kempf, Doreen (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-02)
      Master thesis (pre-Bologna period)
      Restricted access - author's decision
      The use of hydroxyapatite (HA) based materials is widely spread in the repair of bone tissue and their great acceptance arises from the close similarity of HA to the mineral phase of bone. In the last years HA has been ...
