Paper Title:
Mineralization Layers on Glasses of the Si-Ca-P-Mg System in a Physiologically Buffered Plasmatic Electrolyte
  Abstract

Mineralization experiments on glasses of the Si-Ca-P-Mg system were carried out for 7 days in carbonated simulated inorganic plasma (CSIP) buffered with CO2/HCO3 -. This method enables physiological buffering of the solution within the 7.3–7.4 pH interval by maintaining a HCO3 - concentration between 24 and 27 mmol.L-1, which is the normal concentration range in blood plasma. XRD, SEM/EDS and FTIR were used to characterise the glass surfaces. All glasses exhibited an apatite-like deposit whose Ca/P ratio was dependent on glass composition.
