Hydroxyapatite Formation on Cellular Alumina Coated with Bioactive Glasses

Abstract:

Article Preview

Various works have been done to produce a cellular form of bioactive ceramics for a scaffold. However, the most of these cellular implants have low compressive strength. In this study, therefore, glass-infiltrated cellular alumina with compressive strength of 7.3MPa was first prepared. Bioactive glass was then coated on the cellular alumina. When the specimen was reacted in simulate body fluid, hydroxyapatite developed on the bioactive glass coat in 18 hours.
