Electrosynthesized type I collagen membranes provide a robust scaffold for phase-controlled nucleation of carbonated hydroxyapatite, which is similar to the mineral composition of natural bone. Phase selectivity persists under a wide range of electrosynthesis conditions that would, in the absence of the membrane, produce other calcium phosphate phases such as brushite or amorphous calcium phosphate. Results also indicate enhanced mineral formation in the presence of collagen.
