Study on the self-setting property and the in vitro bioactivity of beta-Ca2SiO4.

Abstract

This study sought to investigate the physical and chemical properties of beta-dicalcium silicate (beta-Ca(2)SiO(4)) in order to evaluate its use as an injectable bioactive cement filler. Workable beta-Ca(2)SiO(4) pastes with a liquid-to-powder (L/P) ratio of 1.0-1.2 could be injected for 10-30 min (nozzle diameter 2.0 mm) and enabled initial setting times… (More)
