Influence of pH Value Stability on the Biomineralization of Bioglass
Papers reported that the pH value was rising slowly with the prolonging of soaking time when bioglass was studied into simulated body fluids, and it influenced the formation of apatite layer on the surface of bioglass obviously. An Intelligent Multi-parameter in vitro Simulated Evaluation （IMSE system） was used to study the bio-mineralization properties of 58S bioglass. The deposition of apatite formation on the surface of bioglass (BG) from dynamic r-SBF was studied systemically with IMSE system, which could control and stable such parameters as temperature, fluid rate, ion concentrations and pH value etc. precisely. Results showed that the rate of apatite formation was slowed down when pH value was stabled at about 7.35.
