An investigation of bioactive glass powders by sol-gel processing.

Abstract

Bioactive glass powders, with a composition of SiO 2-CaO-P 2O 5, have been successfully synthesized via a sol-gel process at considerably lower temperatures than required for conventional melting methods. Bioactive glass powders made via conventional methods form an interfacial bond with bone when they are implanted. Bonding is correlated with the… (More)
