The Equilibrium between Calcite and Apatite Precipitation onto Bioglass from Three Different Aqueous Media
It has been reported that there is a slight equilibrium between calcite and apatite precipitation from SBF solution during typical bioactivity assays, once it is supersaturating in both ionic precursors. In order to better understand this mechanism, we have proposed here to evaluate the role of three different aqueous medium (water, SBF and McCoy), under equilibrium (agitation) and out of equilibrium (no agitation).
