The aim of this study was to synthesize and characterize a hybrid composite based on type I hydrated collagen, hydroxyapatite and a silane precursor (amino-propyltriethoxysilane). Through sol-gel approach of the precursor and noncovalent immobilization of collagen on the surface of hydroxyapatite, a new type of hybrid material was obtained in which microspheres comprising silica and hydroxyapatite particles are dispersed in an oriented fibrous network of collagen fibrils. Moreover, the sol-gel reactions between the above-mentioned components were not accompanied by conformational changes of the adsorbed collagen, thus preserving its secondary structure.
