Calcium Polyphosphate Bioceramics with Different Ca/P Ratios


Article Preview

Calcium polyphosphate (CPP) bioceramics with different Ca/P ratios were fabricated. It was shown that the contents of CPP in the sintered ceramics decrease with the increasing Ca/P ratios (0.5-1.0) of the precursors. The higher the Ca/P ratios of precursors were, the more complex the phases of polymerization were. The compressive strengths of ceramics sintered at the same temperature showed a linear decreasing tendency with the increasing Ca/P ratio.
