Preparation and Characterization of a New Type of Sr-Contained Hydroxyapatite Bone Cement
A novel route is developed to prepare a new type of Sr-contained hydroxyapatite bone cement. Tetracalcium phosphate, strontium hydrogen phosphate or anhydrous strontium chlorite, dicalcium phosphate, phosphoric and water are used as precursors. XRD, FTIR and EDXS are used to characterize the incorporation of 5% or 10% Sr2+ into the crystal lattice of hydroxyapatite. Results indicate that the Sr-contained CPC system of TTCP/DCPA/DSPA can set in 0.5M diluted phosphate acid with a final product of non-stoichiometric Sr-contained hydroxyapatite.
