Dissolution and scanning electron microscopic studies of Ca,P particle-containing bioactive glasses.

Abstract

Calcium phosphate (Ca,P) precipitation behavior on the surface of two bioactive glasses and four bioactive glass composites--two with hydroxylapatite (Ca10(PO4)6 (OH)2) and two with rhenanite (CaNaPO4)--were studied in simulated body fluid (SBF) and in Tris-Buffer at 5, 8, 16, 24, 48, 72, and 144 h. The weight loss of the materials was measured and the… (More)
