45S5 Bioglass® (45S5) is one of the most widely used biomaterials in ceramic-based bone graft substitutes by virtue of its excellent biocompatibility and bioactivity. However, the fracture toughness and wear resistance of 45S5 have to be improved to extend its applications in load bearing orthopedic implants. The current study reports the first use of graphene nanoplatelet (GNP) to enhance the fracture toughness and wear resistance of 45S5. Composite powders with four different loadings of… CONTINUE READING
