    Composites based on lactic acid oligomers, calcium hydrophosphate and hydroxyapatite synthesized under the action of microwave radiation were obtained in situ. The appearance of a new band associated with stretching vibrations of >C=O in spectra of the chloroform-insoluble fraction is indicative of the chemical interaction between lactic acid and hydroxyapatite. To determine whether a calcium phosphate layer can be formed on the surface of composite samples, biomimetic studies in a physiological SBF solution were carried out during 28 days at 37 C. It was found that all samples containing calcium phosphates promote active formation of a new calcium phosphate layer, whereas lactic acid oligomer in samples containing no inorganic component undergoes destruction in the SBF solution as a result of hydrolysis. The estimate of the resorption rate demonstrated that the solubility of calcium phosphates contained in the composites at 20 C in the physiological solution is 3-7 times that of pure hydroxyapatite.
