Understanding bioactivity and polarizability of hydroxyapatite doped with tungsten.

Abstract

This study investigates the use of hydroxyapatite (HAp) doped with hexavalent tungsten to improve its interaction with bone cells and to influence the polarizing capacity of HAp. Increases in dopant concentration increased the β-TCP phases and decreased the HAp phases in sintered samples. Results of thermally stimulated depolarization current measurements… (More)
