In this study, a novel process for the removal of toxic lead from the CRT funnel glass and synchronous preparation of high silica glass powder was developed by a carbon-thermal reduction enhanced glass phase separation process. CRT funnel glass was remelted with B2O3 in reducing atmosphere. In the thermal process, a part of PbO contained in the funnel glass was reduced into metallic Pb and detached from the glass phase. The rest of PbO and other metal oxides (including Na2O, K2O, Al2O3, BaO and CaO) were mainly concentrated in the boric oxide phase...

In attempts to fabricate model systems of Fe-containing aluminosilicates, we studied the incorporation of iron into silicate and aluminosilicate bilayer films grown on Ru(0001). Structural characterization was performed by low energy electron diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, infrared reflection-absorption spectroscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy. The experimental results show that even at low concentrations Fe does not randomly substitute Si(Al) cations in the silicate framework, but segregates into a pure silicate (aluminosilicate) phase and an Fe-silicate phase which is formed by an FeO(111)-like layer underneath a silicate layer...

This study presents an integrated synopsis of the solidification and immobilization mechanisms of fly ash-based geopolymers. A rational analysis of the ion reactions involved in geopolymerization was conducted using the partial charge model (PCM). The following conclusions were obtained: (1) heavy metal cations cannot be immobilized as counter cations through exchange with Na(+); (2) isomorphous substitution of heavy metals in the geopolymer can be expected from the condensation reaction between the hydrolyzed heavy metal species and aluminosilicate; (3) the hydrolyzed species condensation could result in solidification and immobilization and be promoted by aluminates; and (4) a geopolymer with the highest immobilization and solidification efficiency can be obtained at an intermediate pH value...

Nanostructured ceramic particles, particularly, nanoparticles of calcium phosphate (CaP) remain an attractive option among the various types of non-viral gene delivery vectors studied because of their safety, biocompatibility, biodegradability, and ease of handling as well as their adsorptive capacity for DNA. We have accordingly developed an enhanced version of nanostructured calcium phosphates (NanoCaPs), by substituting known amounts of silicate for phosphate in the hydroxyapatite (HA) lattice (NanoSiCaPs)...

Creation of structural complexity by simple experimental control will be an attractive approach for the preparation of nanomaterials, as a classical bottom-up method is supplemented by a more efficient and more direct artificial engineering method. In this study, structural manipulation of MCM-41 type mesoporous silica is investigated by generating and imbedding hard magnetic CoFe2O4 nanoparticles into mesoporous silica. Depending on the heating rate and target temperature, mesoporous silica undergoes a transformation in shape to form hollow silica, framed silica with interior voids, or melted silica with intact mesostructures...

BACKGROUND: The drawbacks of iliac crest autograft as graft material for spine fusion are well reported. Despite continued modifications to improve bone healing capacity, the efficacy of synthetic graft materials as stand-alone replacements remains uncertain. The rabbit posterolateral fusion model is an established environment for testing of fusion concepts. It offers the opportunity to obtain radiographic, biomechanical and histological data on novel fusion materials. The objective of this study was to compare the spine fusion capability of two synthetic bone graft products in an established rabbit posterolateral spine fusion (PLF) model: Signafuse® Bioactive Bone Graft Putty and Actifuse® ABX...

INTRODUCTION: Spine surgeons are embracing advanced biologic technologies in an attempt to help millions of people achieve a better outcome in spine surgery. These new technologies may be complicated to understand, partly because the contribution of different types of cells has not been definitively identified. This paper describes the characteristics of the stem cells used in spine surgery, including their actions and possible complications. The description necessitates an overview of all studies to date on the use of stem cells in spine surgery, as well as other cells used in cellular therapy...

To achieve the excellent mechanical properties of biodegradable materials used for cortical bone graft substitutes and fracture fixation devices remains a challenge. To this end, the biomimetic calcium silicate/gelatin/chitosan oligosaccharide composite implants were developed, with an aim of achieving high strength, controlled degradation, and superior osteogenic activity. The work focused on the effect of gelatin on mechanical properties of the composites under four different kinds of mechanical stresses including compression, tensile, bending, and impact...

Eu(2) (+) -doped Sr2 SiO4 phosphor with Ca(2) (+) /Zn(2) (+) substitution, (Sr1-x Mx )2 SiO4 :Eu(2) (+) (M = Ca, Zn), was prepared using a high-temperature solid-state reaction method. The structure and luminescence properties of Ca(2) (+) /Zn(2) (+) partially substituted Sr2 SiO4 :Eu(2) (+) phosphors were investigated in detail. With Ca(2) (+) or Zn(2) (+) added to the silicate host, the crystal phase could be transformed between the α-form and the β-form of the Sr2 SiO4 structure. Under UV excitation at 367 nm, all samples exhibit a broad band emission from 420 to 680 nm due to the 4f(6) 5d(1)  → 4f(7) transition of Eu(2) (+) ions...

OBJECTIVE: To develop a new expression system regulated by a ferric uptake regulator in which silicic acid is used as an inducer. RESULTS: Fur box (binding site for Fur) was substituted for the lac operator to regulate the expression of GFP with the lac promoter. Since the addition of supersaturated silicic acid invokes iron deficiency, supersaturated silicic acids were used as an inducer. GFP expression was dependent on silica concentration, and the expression level without silica was negligible...

Intrinsic bioinertness severely hampers the application of polyetheretherketone (PEEK), although in the field of dentistry it is considered to be an ideal titanium substitute implanting material. In this study, a bioactive silicate coating was successfully introduced onto PEEK surface by using electron beam evaporation (EBE) technology to improve its bioactivity and osseointegration of PEEK. Through controlling the duration of EBE, the incorporated amounts of silicon (Si) could be exquisitely adjusted to obtain proper biofunctionality, as assessed by cell adhesion, proliferation, osteogenic gene expression, and protein detection...

Recently, a silicate with the composition SrxBa1-xZn2Si2O7 was reported, which exhibits a negative coefficient of thermal expansion. The compound BaZn2Si2O7 shows a highly positive coefficient of thermal expansion up to a temperature of 280 °C and then transfers to a high temperature phase, which exhibits a coefficient of thermal expansion near zero or negative over a limited temperature range up to around 500 °C. This high temperature modification can be stabilized to room temperature if Ba(2+) is replaced by Sr(2+)...

Glass polyalkenoate cements (GPCs) have potential for skeletal cementation. Unfortunately, commercial GPCs all contain, and subsequently release, aluminum ions, which have been implicated in degenerative brain disease. The purpose of this research was to create a series of aluminum-free GPCs constructed from silicate (SiO₂), calcium (CaO), zinc (ZnO) and sodium (Na₂O)-containing glasses mixed with poly-acrylic acid (PAA) and to evaluate the potential of these cements for cranioplasty applications. Three glasses were formulated based on the SiO₂-CaO-ZnO-Na₂O parent glass (KBT01) with 0...

In addition to calcium phosphate-based ceramics, glass-based materials have been utilized as bone substitutes, and silicate in these materials has been suggested to contribute to their ability to stimulate bone repair. In this study, a silicate-containing α-tricalcium phosphate (α-TCP) ceramic was prepared using a wet chemical process. Porous granules composed of silicate-containing α-TCP, for which the starting composition had a molar ratio of 0.05 for Si/(P + Si), and silicate-free α-TCP were prepared and evaluated in vivo...

The synthetic leucite silicate framework mineral analogues Rb2 XSi5O12 {X = Ni [dirubidium nickel(II) penta-silicate] and Mn [dirubidium manganese(II) penta-silicate]} have been prepared by high-temperature solid-state synthesis. The results of Rietveld refinements, using X-ray powder diffraction data collected using Cu Kα X-rays, show that the title compounds crystallize in the space group Pbca and adopt the cation-ordered structure of Cs2CdSi5O12 and other leucites. The structures consist of tetra-hedral SiO4 and XO4 units sharing corners to form a partially substituted silicate framework...
