We prepared biodegradable honeycomb films that covered with hydroxyapatite (HA) for bone tissue engineering scaffolds. The amount of HA was controlled by the time of the surface hydrolysis of the honeycomb films and the concentration of Simulated Body Fluid (SBF). The crystallization of HA was determined by X-ray diffraction. The roughness of the honeycomb surface before and after immersed in SBF was measured by AFM. The uniformity, the amount and the degree of crystallization of the HA precipitated on the honeycomb film depended on the time of hydrolysis of the films and the immersing time of the films in SBF.
