    • Abstract


      In this study, we report the preparation of a bone graft material, having cylindrical shape, containing biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP), gelatin (G), chitosan (C) and Terminalia chebula (TC) extract. TC extract was used as a crosslinker that gives stability to bone graft when it is placed in SBF. The graft was stable in the SBF solution for 21 days and FTIR, SEM, EDX and thermogravimetric studies revealed the ossification of the implant.
