Silicon (Si) substitution in the crystal structures of calcium phosphate (CaP) ceramics such as hydroxyapatite (HA) and tricalcium phosphate (TCP) generates materials with superior biological performance to stoichiometric counterparts. Si, an essential trace element required for healthy bone and connective tissues, influences the biological activity of CaP materials by modifying material properties and by direct effects on the physiological processes in skeletal tissue. The synthesis of Si… CONTINUE READING
