Paper Title:
Sol-Gel Hydroxyapatite-CaO Composites: Fabrication and Bioactivity Studies
  Abstract

In this study the fabrication and characterization of a novel sol-gel derived HAp-CaO composite material is investigated. The bioactive behavior of the fabricated composite was assessed by immersion studies in SBF. A brittle and weakly crystalline carbonate hydroxyapatite (HCAp) layer was found to develop few hours after the immersion in SBF confirming high bioactivity. The presence of CaO accelerates the formation of HCAp phase.
