Novel processing of bioglass ceramics from silicone resins containing micro- and nano-sized oxide particle fillers



Novel processing of bioglass ceramics from silicone resins containing micro- and nano-sized oxide particle fillers



Journal of Biomedical Materials Research. Part a 102(8): 2502-2510



Highly porous scaffolds with composition similar to those of 45S5 and 58S bioglasses were successfully produced by an innovative processing method based on preceramic polymers containing micro- and nano-sized fillers. Silica from the decomposition of the silicone resins reacted with the oxides deriving from the fillers, yielding glass ceramic components after heating at 1000°C. Despite the limited mechanical strength, the obtained samples possessed suitable porous architecture and promising biocompatibility and bioactivity characteristics, as testified by preliminary in vitro tests.
