Abstract In recent years, fabrication of porous bioceramic scaffolds, inorganic/organic biocomposites mimicking the composite nature of real bone has attracted research interest in the field of bone regeneration. Investigations on composites based of bioactive calcium phosphate phases and synthetic biodegradable polymers for biomedical applications appear to be an advanced topic in biomaterials research. The aim of this study was to design suitable technology for obtaining multifunctional micro-granules for medical application such as bone filler materials or micro-carriers for drug delivery.
