In this project is proposed to modify the surface of Bioglass 45S5 with calcium ions employing ion exchange method and short duration heat treatment. By using these procedures are expected to change the chemical composition and microstructural properties of glass surface. Previous studies on surface modification of 45S5 Bioglass has demonstrated an acceleration of the kinetics of formation of the calcium phosphate layer on the surface of the modified bioglass. In addition, the ion exchange method for promoting the enrichment with calcium ions can allow the study of surface properties with a composition that would not be obtained by direct synthesis by melt-quenching method. Short duration heat treatment, in turn, on the surface enriched in Ca+2 can induce the formation of domain calcium-rich domains that play a role as preferential nucleation centers for apatite. By combining these two methods for glass surface modification is possible to design of surfaces, modulating their properties of bioactivity and osteoinduction. Another aim of this project is studying the effects of niobium oxide on the glass structure, bioactivity, and mechanical properties. The study of changes in the composition of 45S5 bioglass with niobium oxide is promising, and it can contribute to the expansion of knowledge of the biocompatible properties of Nb2O5 in bioglasses.
