• Tuning the mechanical, microstructural, and cell adhesion properties of electrospun ε-polycaprolactone microfibers by doping selenium-containing carbonated hydroxyapatite as a reinforcing agent with magnesium ions

    Abstract
    The flexible lattice of hydroxyapatite allows for doping with ions widely varying in size and charge and these ions can impart a range of properties that could be harnessed for high technology applications. However, incorporation of combinations of ions, each of which endows HAP with different properties, has rarely been explored, let alone in combination with polymers. Carbonated hydroxyapatite dually doped with magnesium and selenite ions was synthesized at different contents of the Mg 2+ dopant and integrated within electrospun ε-polycaprolactone microfibers. The formula
