    Abstract: In this paper, a series of alginate/hydroxyapatite (HAP) composite scaffolds were prepared and characterized. HAP was incorporated into the alginate gel solution to improve the mechanical properties and biocompatibility of scaffolds. The scaffold was prepared by a three-step procedure: first gelation of the alginate solution to form a hydrogel with divalent cations (such as Ca2+, Sr2+and Ba2+), then freezing, and finally drying by lyophilization to produce a three-dimensional, porous sponge. Alginate/HAP composite scaffolds prepared in this paper not only have well interconnected, highly porous structure but also have greater mechanical properties than the neat alginate scaffold. The morphology of scaffolds can be manipulated by tuning the quenching temperature during the preparation. The degradation behavior
    of alginate/HAP composite scaffolds was easy to control through the pretreatment by immersing scaffolds into 1.0 M CaCl2 solution. Osteoblastic-like cell line, UMR-106, seeded into the alginate/HAP composite scaffolds demonstrated better biocompatibility than the pure one. These natural polymeric sponges fabricated in this article may be a promising approach for tissue engineering applications.
