Title

Reactions of Bioactive Borate Glasses with Physiological Liquids

Abstract

The non-uniform reaction of borate glasses with various liquids provides an avenue to produce useful products. The external shape and dimensions of the transformed product is the same as that of starting glass, so there is no need to allow for dimensional changes. The transformation process is fairly rapid at ordinary temperatures, 22 to 40°C, with particles up to 100 micrometers in size being completely transformed in two to 48 hours. In general, the bioactivity of borate glasses expands the range of glass compositions available for use in biological applications.
