Combined Structural Investigations of Bioactive Silicate Glasses


Article Preview

The results of a combined structural characterisation (XRD, IR, NMR, SEM, TEM) of a phosphate containing Mg-Ca silicate and a phosphate containing Na-Ca silicate glass samples are presented. The structural results are also compared with in vitro tests carried out in simulated body fluids for checking bioactivity.
