Porous Biphasic and Triphasic Bioceramics Scaffolds Produced by Gelcasting


Article Preview

The present work suggests a modified gel casting process, including polyethylene wax spheres addition to the suspension with the objective of creating uniform and interconnected pores in the body of samples. In the present study, apatite powders were synthesized at pH 10 and pH 12 in order to give rise to biphasic and triphasic bioceramics after sintering.
