The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of MgO and SrO doping on the mechanical and biological properties of beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP). beta-TCP was doped with two different binary compositions, 0.25 and 1.0wt.% SrO along with 1.0wt.% MgO. MgO and SrO doping increased the beta phase stability at a sintering temperature of 1250 degrees C and marginally decreased the compressive strength of beta-TCP. An in vitro cell-material interaction study, using human fetal… CONTINUE READING
