A series of titanium (Ti) based glasses were formulated (0.62 SiO(2)-0.14 Na(2)O-0.24 CaO, with 0.05 mol% TiO(2) substitutions for SiO(2)) to develop glass/ceramic scaffolds for bone augmentation. Glasses were initially characterised using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and particle size analysis, where the starting materials were amorphous with 4.5 μm particles. Hot stage microscopy and high temperature XRD were used to determine the sintering temperature (~700 °C) and any crystalline phases present… CONTINUE READING
