Paper Abstract

We verified the changes promoted by ionizing radiation in bone tissue using FTIR. Samples of bovine bone were irradiated using Cobalt-60 with 0.01kGy, 0.1kGy, 1kGy, 15kGy and 75kGy. The effects of ionizing irradiation on chemical structure of bone, were studied considering the sub-bands of amide I, the crystallinity index and relation of organic and inorganic materials. ATR-FTIR spectroscopy showed changes in organic components and in hydroxyapatite crystals organization. High correlation with statistical significance was observed between (amideIII+collagen)/ ν1,ν3PO4, crystallinity and mechanical properties of the samples.
