Abstract

The CHAp nanoparticles acted as an efficient nucleating agent thus enhancing the crystallization rate. The obtained results will be useful for interpreting the properties of the PLLA and PLLA/CHAp scaffolds built by the SLS process, during which the crystallization behavior of the PLLA and PLLA/CHAp nanocomposite is between isothermal and non-isothermal.
