Synthesis and Characterization of Bioactive Sol – Gel Glass: A Preliminary Study
Bioactive glasses based on SiO2-CaO-P2O5 system have been synthesized by sol – gel process. The powder glass obtained has been characterized by X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF), and Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). In vitro study reveals formation of apatite layer at surface of powder glass, after 3 days of soaking in simulated body fluid.
