Preparation and Characterization of the Sol-Gel Derived Bioactive Glass-Fibers

Abstract:

Article Preview

The sol-gel derived bioactive glass short fibers in the system CaO-P2O5-SiO2 was prepared using air-spray method. SBF immersion test indicated that the fibers possessed satisfactory bioactivity. SEM, XRD, FTIR analysis revealed that the morphologies and bioactivity of the fibers could be significantly influenced by the composition and viscosity of the solution. The fibers are very promising biomaterials for applications to bone restoration and tissue engineering as the bone defects fillers or additives for strengthening of the biomedical polymers.
