The ceramic of merwinite (Ca3MgSi2O8) was prepared by sintering sol-gel-derived merwinite powder compacts. The mechanical properties and the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of the merwinite ceramic were determined. In vitro bioactivity of the merwinite ceramics was evaluated. Our results showed that the sintered body was single-phase merwinite ceramic, and that its bending strength, fracture toughness and Young's modulus were approximately 151 MPa, 1.72 MPa m(1/2) and 31 GPa… CONTINUE READING
