Abstract

Compositional and nanomechanical behavior of femora from C57BL/6 mice were investigated as a function of intraspecimen tissue age. Raman spectroscopy and nanoindentation was performed across the cortical bone cortex from the younger periosteal to the older endosteal surface. Six indents were done in sets of two and six Raman point scans were done for molecular information. We hypothesize that with increase in mineral crystallinity and thus tissue age, hardness and modulus will increase.
