Abstract / Description:Chitinous scaffolds isolated from the skeleton of marine sponge Aplysina cauliformis were used as a template for the in vitro formation of zirconium dioxide nanophase from ammonium zirconium(IV) carbonate (AZC) under extreme conditions (150 degrees C). These novel zirconia-chitin based composites were prepared for the first time using hydrothermal synthesis, and were thoroughly characterized using a plethora of analytical methods. The thermostability of the chitinous 3D matrix makes it ideal for use in the hydrothermal synthesis of monoclinic nanostructured zirconium dioxide from precursors like AZC. These zirconium-chitin composites have a high potential for use in a broad range of applications ranging from synthetic catalysis to biocompatible materials for bone and dental repair. The synthetic methods presented in this work show an attractive route for producing monoclinic zirconium dioxide on a 3D biocompatible scaffold with ease.
