Highly porous bioactive glass-ceramic scaffolds were effectively fabricated by an inorganic gel casting technique, based on alkali activation and gelification, followed by viscous flow sintering. Glass powders, already known to yield a bioactive sintered glass-ceramic (CEL2) were dispersed in an alkaline solution, with partial dissolution of glass powders. The obtained glass suspensions underwent progressive hardening, by curing at low temperature (40 °C), owing to the formation of a C-S-H (calcium silicate hydrate) gel...

Alkalinity generation and toxic trace metal (such as vanadium) leaching from basic oxygen furnace (BOF) steel slag particles must be properly understood and managed by pre-conditioning if beneficial reuse of slag is to be maximised. Water leaching under aerated conditions was investigated using fresh BOF slag at three different particle sizes (0.5-1.0, 2-5 and 10 × 10 × 20 mm blocks) and a 6-month pre-weathered block. There were several distinct leaching stages observed over time associated with different phases controlling the solution chemistry: (1) free-lime (CaO) dissolution (days 0-2); (2) dicalcium silicate (Ca2SiO4) dissolution (days 2-14) and (3) Ca-Si-H and CaCO3 formation and subsequent dissolution (days 14-73)...

We investigated the possibility of band structure engineering of pyroxene silicates with chemical formula A+1B+3Si2O6 by proper cation substitution. Typically, bandgaps of naturally formed pyroxene silicates such as NaAlSi2O6 are quite high (~5 eV). Therefore, it is important to find a way to reduce bandgaps for these materials below 3 eV to make them usable for optoelectronic applications operating at visible light range of the spectrum. Using first-principles calculations, we found that appropriate substitutions of both A+ and B3+ cations can reduce the bandgaps of these materials to as low as 1...

Bone cements based on magnesium phosphates such as newberyite (N; MgHPO4 .3H2 O) have been shown as potential bone substitutes due to their biocompatibility, biodegradability and ability to support osteoblast differentiation and proliferation. Newberyite can hydrolyze to hydrated magnesium phosphate compounds (e.g. bobierite (Mg3 (PO4 )2 .8H2 O)) at alkaline conditions. In this study, 25 and 50 wt% of crystalline β -wollastonite (woll; CaSiO3 ) was admixed to newberyite powder in order to both enhance the acid-base hydrolysis of newberyite and to produce a functional bone cement...

Calcium phosphate materials (CaPs) are similar to inorganic part of human mineralized tissues (i.e., bone, enamel, and dentin). Owing to their high biocompatibility, CaPs, mainly hydroxyapatite (HA), have been investigated for their use in various medical applications. One of the most widely used ways to improve the biological and physicochemical properties of HA is ionic substitution with trace ions. Recent developments in bioceramics have already demonstrated that introducing foreign ions is also possible in other CaPs, such as tricalcium phosphates (amorphous as well as α and β crystalline forms) and brushite...

Implanting artificial biomaterial implants into alveolar bone defects with individual shape and appropriate mechanical strength is still a challenge. In this study, bioceramic scaffolds, which can precisely match the mandibular defects in macro and micro, were manufactured by the 3-dimensional (3D) printing technique according to the computed tomography (CT) image. To evaluate the stimulatory effect of the material substrate on bone tissue regeneration in situ in a rabbit mandibular alveolar bone defect model, implants made with the newly developed, mechanically strong ~10% Mg-substituted wollastonite (Ca 90% Mg 10% SiO 3 ; CSi-Mg10) were fabricated, implanted into the bone defects, and compared with implants made with the typical Ca-phosphate and Ca-silicate porous bioceramics, such as β-tricalcium phosphate (TCP), wollastonite (CaSiO 3 ; CSi), and bredigite (Bred)...

The concept of protecting groups and leaving groups in organic synthesis was applied to the synthesis of siloxane-based molecules. Alkoxy-functionalized siloxane oligomers composed of SiO4 , RSiO3 , or R2 SiO2 units were chosen as targets (R: functional groups, such as Me and Ph). Herein we describe a novel synthesis of alkoxysiloxane oligomers based on the substitution reaction of trimethylsilyl (TMS) groups with alkoxysilyl groups. Oligosiloxanes possessing TMS groups were reacted with alkoxychlorosilane in the presence of BiCl3 as a catalyst...

This study investigates an environmentally friendly technology that utilizes waste by-products (waste acid and waste alkali liquids) to treat mineral processing wastewater. Chemical precipitation is used to remove silicate from scheelite (CaWO4) cleaning flotation wastewater and the waste by-products are used as a substitute for calcium chloride (CaCl2). A series of laboratory experiments is conducted to explain the removal of silicate and the characterization and formation mechanism of calcium silicate. The results show that silicate removal reaches 90% when the Ca:Si molar ratio exceeds 1...

A comparative investigation was undertaken on 1-2mm sized granules of two forms of synthetic bone graft substitute (SBG) with identical pore structure but varied bulk chemistry, stoichiometric hydroxyapatite (HA) and silicate substituted (0.8wt% Si) hydroxyapatite (SA), to assess the influence of SBG chemistry on the relative affinity of an osteogenic growth factor (GF), recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2). A previously described novel fluorescent probe, fluoresceinthioureidoaminocaproic acid (FTCA), was covalently attached to rhBMP-2 to give FTCA-rhBMP-2 and facilitate the quantitative monitoring of GF uptake and release from the two chemistries of SBG...

This study aimed to investigate the processing parameters and biocompatibility of a novel biphasic dicalcium silicate (C₂S) cement. Biphasic α´L + β-C₂Sss was synthesized by solid-state processing, and was used as a raw material to prepare the cement. In vitro bioactivity and biocompatibility studies were assessed by soaking the cement samples in simulated body fluid (SBF) and human adipose stem cell cultures. Two critical-sized defects of 6 mm Ø were created in 15 NZ tibias. A porous cement made of the high temperature forms of C₂S, with a low phosphorous substitution level, was produced...

Doped calcium silicate ceramics (DCSCs) have recently gained immense interest as a new class of candidates for the treatment of bone defects. Although calcium phosphates and bioactive glasses have remained the mainstream of ceramic bone substitutes, their clinical use is limited by suboptimal mechanical properties. DCSCs are a class of calcium silicate ceramics which are developed through the ionic substitution of calcium ions, the incorporation of metal oxides into the base binary xCaO-ySiO₂ system, or a combination of both...

This study assesses the quantitative effects of incorporating high-volume fly ash (HVFA) into tricalcium silicate (C₃S) paste on the hydration, degree of silicate polymerization, and Al substitution for Si in calcium silicate hydrate (C-S-H). Thermogravimetric analysis and isothermal conduction calorimetry showed that, although the induction period of C₃S hydration was significantly extended, the degree of hydration of C₃S after the deceleration period increased due to HVFA incorporation. Synchrotron-sourced soft X-ray spectromicroscopy further showed that most of the C₃S in the C₃S-HVFA paste was fully hydrated after 28 days of hydration, while that in the pure C₃S paste was not...

While olivine LiFePO4 shows amongst the best electrochemical properties of Li-ion positive electrodes with respect to rate behavior owing to facile Li(+) migration pathways in the framework, replacing the [PO4](3-) polyanion with a silicate [SiO4](4-) moiety in olivine is desirable. This could allow additional alkali content and hence electron transfer, and increase the capacity. Herein we explore the possibility of a strategy toward new cathode materials and demonstrate the first stabilization of a lithium transition metal silicate (as a pure silicate) in the olivine structure type...

Glass polyalkenoate cements (GPCs) have potential as bio-adhesives due to their ease of application, appropriate mechanical properties, radiopacity and chemical adhesion to bone. Aluminium (Al)-free GPCs have been discussed in the literature, but have proven difficult to balance injectability with mechanical integrity. For example, zinc-based, Al-free GPCs reported compressive strengths of 63 MPa, but set in under 2 min. Here, the authors design injectable GPCs (IGPCs) based on zinc-containing, Al-free silicate compositions containing GeO₂, substituted for ZnO at 3% increments through the series...
