Millions of people are suffering from bone defect arising from trauma, tumor or bone diseases. Therefore, there is a growing need for the development of biocomposites with excellent bioactivity and compatibility. In this study hydroxyapatite (HAp) nanorod embedded composite was prepared using vinyl ether of ethylene glycol (VEEG) as a matrix. The role of VEEG composition on the crystallite size, degree of crystallinity, functional groups and morphology of nanocomposites were characterised by TEM analysis. The results indicated that the size and crystallinity of Hapnano particles decreases with increase in VEEG concentration in the composite. This shows the size control effect of VEEG concentration on HApnanorods. Due to the chemical bond interactions between HAp and VEEG. TEM micrograph confirms the presence of Hapnano rod crystals in VEEG matrix.
