Preparation and In Vitro Behavior of Bioactive Glasses from Bovine Waste Resource

Abstract:

Article Preview

Preparation of bioactive glasses was attempted utilizing waste bovine as raw resource. Bioactive and biodegradable batch compositions in the Na2O-CaO-SiO2 system were included with calcined bovine, whose phase was high-purity oxy-hydroxyapatite. Bovine inclusion as large as 40 mass% was shown to present highly bioactive glasses; bovine in the bioactive and biodegradable compositions presented glasses with controlled bioactivity and biodegradability, respectively. These indicate not only a plenty biological resource of bio-interactive materials, but also an alternative strategy for bioactive glasses with multi-functional applications.
