Abstract Calcium phosphates (CaP) have excellent biomaterial properties and are widely applied for bone regeneration. A major drawback is the brittle nature of CaP, therefore it has limited use in load bearing areas of skeleton. Biodegradable polymer (e.g. polylactic acid and polycaprolactone) is biocompatible, synthetic polymer with high strength and modulus. It can easily be processed into shapes such as screws, pins and plates for orthopaedic applications, and fabricated into scaffolds for replacement and regeneration of tissues.
