|Abstract||The effect of hydroxyapatite (HAP) on the performance of nanocomposites of an unsaturated polyester, i.e. hydroxy-terminated high molecular weight poly(proplyene fumarate) (HT-PPFhm), was investigated A thermoset nanocomposite was prepared with nanoparticles of calcined HAP (<100 nm, rod-like shape, filler content 30 wt %), HT-PPFhm and N-vinyl pyrrolidone, dibenzoyl peroxide and N,N-dimethyl aniline. Two more nanocomposites were prepared with precipitated HAP nanoparticles (<100 nm rod-like shape) and commercially available HAP nanoparticles (<200 nm spherical shape), respectively Calcined HAP nanoparticles resulted in very good crosslinking in the resin matrix with high crosslinking density and Interfacial bonding with the polymer. owing to the rod-like shape of the nanoparticles, this gave improved biomechanical strength and modulus and also controlled degradation of the nanocomposite for scaffold formation The tissue compatibility and osteocompatibility of the nanocomposite containing calcined HAP nanoparticles was evaluated The tissue compatibility was Studied by Intramuscular implantation in a rabbit animal model for 3 months as per ISO standard 10993/6 The in vivo femoral bone repair was also carried out in the rabbit animal model as per ISO standard 10993/6 The nanocomposite containing calcined HAP nanoparticles is both biocompatible and osteocompatible (C) 2009 Acta Materialia Inc Published by Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
