Series: Materials Science and Technologies
BISAC: TEC021000

This book discusses properties, functions and applications of bioglass. Chapter One provides an overview and compares some glasses and glass ceramics obtained by different preparation methods by means of structural, morphological and textural properties in order to better understand the importance of selecting a certain type of biomaterial depending on its specific application. Chapter Two describes and discusses the concepts, trends and advances related to the preparation of highly textured bioglasses and the subsequent combination with biopolymers, as advanced biocomposites for tissue engineering. Chapter Three presents a new method of fabricating metal phosphates via interaction of metal oleates with tributylphosphate solution. (Imprint: Novinka)
