Simultaneous Insertion of Mg2+, Sr2+ and Mn2+ Ions into Hydroxyapatite Structure
The current trends in bioactive ceramics point out the ionic substitution in hydroxyapatite (HA) as a concrete way to create new active ceramics with a high developed biomimetic character. Accordingly, our objective in this work was investigating the effects of the simultaneous replacement of Ca2+ ions for Mg2+, Sr2+ and Mn2+ into the crystalline structure of HA.
