A Combined Experimental-Computational Strategy for the Design, Synthesis and Characterization of Bioactive Zinc-Silicate Glasses
This review presents a combined experimental-computational strategy for the development of potential bioactive zinc–containing silicate glasses and shows how sound relationships among the structural role of some key elements that appear to control bioactivity can by established and exploit for rational glass design.
