The objective of this work is to identify synthetic pathways for materials useful in the effective repair of the skeletal system. Ideally a universal artificial bone would be identified that can function as a cementitious, pseudoplastic, or structural material. The cementitious form would be very important for bone adhesives that repair bone fractures and restore bone defects. The pseudoplastic form would aid in the in situ reconstruction of anatomical defects and the structural material could be used to prefabricate prostheses. It is critical of course for all these forms of the artificial bone to have strongly regenerative properties so that as implants they would integrate microscopically with natural bone.
