These are based on the compositional requirements of the glass and are that it must contain <60 mol% SiO2 , a high Na2 O and CaO content, and lastly a high CaO:P2 O5 ratio. 5 6 of the most commonly used bioactive glasses, known as 45S5, has 45 wt% SiO2 , with a CaO:P2 O5 ratio in the order of 5:1. 4. It is known that glasses with a lower ratio than this will not bond with bone . In an aqueous environment bioactive glass will undergo a rapid surface reaction which will result in a fast rate of bonding to tissue.
The valency of silicon is four (Si4+ ) whereas that of sodium is one (Na1+ ). Therefore, when sodium is added to silica, in order to maintain electrical neutrality in the structure each silicon atom must be replaced by four sodium atoms. As a consequence of adding the sodium, the network is disrupted and some oxygen atoms are only bonded to one silicon atom and become ‘non-bridging’. Sodium is therefore described as a network modifier. The effects are beneficial in terms of processing as the result of adding the sodium is that the viscosity is markedly reduced.
