Abstract:
    This project targets the economic green chemistry synthesis of biocompatible HydroxyApatite nanocomposite with 2D nanomaterials to improve tensile and shear strength of HA for bone and dental implants
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    People with bone implants cannot live the same life as before due to certain limitations of implant material. Our idea is a step towards removing those limitations and help people live their same old life.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   People suffering from severe bone fractures or old age people whom bones wont grow on their own. People who wanna do physical work after getting implants. Also people of any age who need dental implant for any reason. Exact number is not known but the issue is common enough to make it significant
How will the solution works
    The nanocomposite will be made using 2D Boron Nitride,a very hard material, which will make the HydroxyApatite strong under tensile and shear load and will retain the white color as that of bone or teeth i.e keeping its aesthetics. It will also be biocompatible.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    No competitors as per our knowledge
