Abstract

The chemical construction of organized architectures is an important aspect of innovative materials synthesis. Bicontinuous water-filled microemulsions can be used as preorganized systems for the fabrication of crystalline calcium phosphate materials with extended reticulated microstructures. These macroporous materials are formed by mineralization reactions located within the interconnecting water channels of the bicontinuous network. The resulting materials represent replicas of the microemulsion architecture, but the pore sizes are incommensurate, suggesting that secondary modifications in the bicontinuous microstructure occur during crystal growth. Synthetic macroporous calcium phosphates could have uses in biomaterial implants.
