Börner, Hans G. 2016-09-15T13:36:54Z Barbero, Cesar Alfredo Electrospun submicrometer-sized poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) meshes and nanosized multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were used as a template for preparing porous and interconnected inorganic-organic hybrid materials composed of CaCO<sub>3</sub>. Herein, we describe the proportion and incorporation method of submicrometer-sized plasma-treated PCL meshes over areas >1 mm<sup>2</sup> with CaCO<sub>3</sub> using three crystallization methods including the use of poly(acrylic acid) (PAA). We found that flexible and rigid acid-functionalized MWCNTs showed a clear capacity and effects to penetrate calcite particles. MWCNTs interacted differently with the individual growth planes of CaCO<sub>3</sub>, indicating that fibers can undergo changes depending on sulfonate or carboxylate groups, adopt different orientations in solution, and thereby elicit changes in CaCO<sub>3</sub> morphology. In summary, the use of PCL and acidic MWCNT fibers as an additive for substrate templates and experimental crystallization provides a viable approach for studying various aspects of biomineralization, including the production of controlled particles, control of porosities, and defined morphologies at microscale and nanoscale levels. 2016-08-23
