The purpose of this study is to synthesize mesoporous calcium silicate (CS or wollastonite, CaSiO(3)) and evaluate its possible application in protein/drug delivery. First, calcium silicate was synthesized by wet chemical method and then mesoporosity was created by acid modification of the synthesized CS particle using hydrochloric acid at pH 7, 4.5, and 0.5. The results showed that a hydrated silica gel with abundant Si-OH functional group formed on the surface of calcium silicate due to acid… CONTINUE READING
