As a part of this work, investigations were carried out on the composites of barium titanate and combeite. The structural characterisation by XRD indicated the formation of a composite with phases of both materials present. The optical band gaps were found to be in the range of ~ 3–3.5 eV. The piezoelectric coefficient recorded for the composites was closer to that of human bone. The compression strength values are in the range of ~ 13–59 MPa. Calcium phosphate formation was seen post in vitro acellular immersion tests. From this study, it is evident that these materials exhibit multifunctional abilities that find applications in both engineering and medical fields.
