The Role of Si Substitution into Hydroxyapatite Coatings

Abstract:

Article Preview

Silicon substituted Hydroxyapatite coatings were prepared by Pulsed Laser Deposition from targets made of mixtures of Hydroxyapatite with Si powder at different concentrations. The properties of the Si-HA coatings with several degrees of Si substitution were analyzed by different techniques such as FTIR, XRD, XPS and solid-state NMR. It was found that the Si incorporation causes an amorphization of the structure together with a loss of carbonate groups. Furthermore, the Si atoms are incorporated in the form of SiO4 4- groups, and H(PO4)2- appears as the predominant phosphate group.
