Exchange Reactions at Calcium Phosphates Surface and Applications to Biomaterials
The interaction of calcium phosphates with biological molecules under controlled conditions permits the formulation of meaningful conclusions concerning the driving forces. The uptake and release at the material-solution interface is the result of the various interactions between and within the system components which include the solid surface, the adsorbate, the solvent and other solutes present. The understanding of adsorption and desorption mechanisms with respect to active molecules can be exploited for the development of drug delivery applications.
