The aim of this study is to biomimetically synthesize hydroxyapatite–hydrophilic polymer scaffolds for biomedical applications. This organic–inorganic hybrid has been structurally characterized and reveals a good microstructural control as seen by the SEM analysis and the nanosize of the particulates is confirmed by AFM microscopy. The characterization of such nano-structured composites would allow researchers to design new systems, tailoring properties for different applications.

The optimumcombination of experimental variable, temperature, time of heat treatment under nitrogen atmosphere and amount of Ni-salt was delineated to find out the maximum yield of nanophase Ni in the silica gel matrix. The size of Ni in the silica gel was found to be 34 and 45 nm for the two chosen compositions, respectively. A statistically adequate regression equation, within 95% confidence limit was developed by carrying out a set of active experiments within the framework of design of experiment. The regression equation is found to indicate the beneficial role of temperature and time of heat treatment.
