Abstract

The use of nanotechnology for biomedical applications, has potential to change the landscape of the diagnosis and therapy of many diseases. Several therapeutic nanocarriers have been approved for clinical use. The most important advantage of biodegradable polymers is the disappearance of implanted foreign materials from the body as a result of their biodegradation. In this research paper polymeric biodegradable nanocomposites have been synthesized as a drug carrier. Chitosan (CS) and sodium alginate (ALG) with different ratios were blended with different wt% of hydroxyl apatite by solvent evaporation method. Morphology and structure characterization of nanocomposites were investigated by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and Fourier Transmission Infra-Red Spectroscopy (FTIR).
