Process of formation of bone-like apatite layer on silica gel
Journal of materials science. Materials in medicine
It has been proposed that a hydrated silica plays an important role in forming a biologically active apatite layer on the surfaces of bioactive glasses and glass-ceramics in the body. Recent experiments have shown that a silica hydrogel actually induces apatite formation on its surface in a simulated body fluid (SBF). In the present study the process of apatite formation on silica gel was investigated by means of thin-film X-ray diffraction, Fourier-transformed infrared reflection spectroscopydoi:10.1007/bf00120381 fatcat:t354jx4adbhqfmas6k3lalhjki
