Bioceramics: Advances in Applications and Research


Micheal B. Heidelberg (Editor)

Series: Materials Science and Technologies
BISAC: TEC021000

Bioceramics refers to materials that are used for repairing or replacing damaged bone tissues. This book contains four chapters that review bioceramics from a variety of perspectives. Chapter One provides salient information on the structure and properties of several calcium orthophosphates designed and used in a wide range of medical applications. Chapter Two presents a detailed review of studies of isomorphic substitutions and morphotropic transformations in compounds with the crystal structure of apatite. Chapter Three discusses the source, manufacturing methods and advantages of using calcium orthophosphates scaffolds for bone tissue engineering applications. Lastly, Chapter Four focuses on the preparation and characterization of beta-calcium pyrophosphate macroporous scaffolds from avian eggshell waste by using the polymer replication method.
