Abstract

According to the circular economy principles, processing routes aiming at reducing the natural resources con-sumption and the energy demand can be addressed as 'green'. In this framework, mussel shells, a natural feedstock of calcium carbonate, were successfully transformed into nano-crystalline hydroxyapatite by mecha-nochemical synthesis at room temperature after mixing with a phosphoric acid solution. The as-synthesized powder was then consolidated up to 82 % relative density by cold sintering (600 MPa, 200 degrees C). The materials were fully investigated by physical, chemical and thermal characterization techniques. Cold-sintered samples were also subjected to biaxial flexural strength test, showing a flexural resistance of 23 MPa. Cell viability assessment revealed that cold sintered hydroxyapatite derived from mussel shells promotes faster adhesion and spreading of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells, in comparison to a commercial hydroxy-apatite sintered at 1050 degrees C. Therefore, cold-sintered mussel shells-derived hydroxyapatite can be a promising future candidate scaffold for bone tissue regeneration.
