Quantification of anion and cation release from a range of ternary phosphate-based glasses with fixed 45 mol% P2O5.

This article reports on the use of ion chromatography (IC) to investigate extensively the release profiles of both cations and anions and characterize the relationship between composition and degradation for a ternary-based Na(2)O-CaO-P(2)O(5) glass system developed as biomaterials. Studies are carried out on glasses with the formula 45P(2)O(5)-55(xCaO-Na(2… CONTINUE READING
